Description:

(from the Falcon Guide) *** Not a ho-hum route, it has a good deal of decent jamming. About 50 yards past "Out On A Limb" is a large corner with rock "fingers" on the east side (you'll see what I mean). Protection for wide cracks is useful for leading the lower sections.

4 out of 5 stars OFF WIDTH

We rapped and set an anchor about 15ft above the water. Then lead it from there.

Be careful, the beginning is an offwidth. And when I say offwidth I mean half your body in it.

You need big cams 4 5 and 6 BD. Big Bros would be nice.

5 out of 5 stars REALLY fun route with beautifuly backdrop

The route is fairly long on top-rope repel. It is very fun with a lot of varied moves. The view is gorgeous
