4 out of 5 stars Fun!

Runout on the 3rd pitch is the only bad part of this great route. 2nd pitch is excellent. Pitches 4 and 5 are easily combined. If you don't want the runout, do The Mutt and Jeff

5 out of 5 stars Fun climb

I newish to trad climbing and getting 30 feet above my pro was getting me a bit skettched out. Pirch 2 and 3 can be done as one, I found out be accedent and belayed in the cheminy. Very slabby but the friction was good

5 out of 5 stars great climb

fun route, better have good nerves. The traverse on the first pitch was easier than most people make it sound. The third pitch was a lot more run-out than I had planned. It was wet from snowmelt which made the friction in spots near impossible and I was getting 20ft above gear in several places.

3 out of 5 stars Sketchy

I didn't like the run out and sketchy bolts, or the storm.
