5 out of 5 stars Way more information than you may need. . .

The climb itself is a bit less than vertical (85 degrees) with ample spots for protection. The upper crack is wide with ample opportunities to be creative with jamming. Personally I think the grade is a bit soft.

130’ tall route

0-45’
The route begins with a low angle traverse requiring small stoppers (#2-4) or small cams (#0 or 00 Friends).

45-85
The middle section is 1.5”- 2.5” wide crack running up and the left. Bring cams (#2-3 Friends) or large stoppers (#5-8).

85’-110’
The vertical crack itself is 6" wide and flaring requiring you to stem outside and lie back. Bring at least one large cam (#3.5 Friend) or #8-9 hex.

110’-130’
Once you get to the large patch of trees I recommend heading left as it is protect able with nuts (#3-5) and cams (#7.5-1.5 Friends). If you head right it is a 20' unprotect able slab

Anchors
If you’ve gone left you can anchor to a large tree (bring 48” sling) and several shallow cracks ( #5 stopper and pink tricam recommended). Bring 20’ loop cord and two 48” slings.
