4 out of 5 stars Not the route to start on for the day unless youve climbed it

It was fun for the first ten feet then I got off route and lost a cam, two carabiners, and a tri-cam. Instead of the "hole in the top descent," I rapelled down from a pine tree way in the back. An RRG Noob Epic... Take this route with someone who has done it before.

4 out of 5 stars Freaky

I was scared to death of this route...mainly because it was my first trad route. But looking back at it, it gave me a lot of experience. Aside from the route eating a cam and a tri cam, it was a good climb.
