5 out of 5 stars _

I walked up to this one with no expectations and it ended up being one of my favorite routes at the grade in Vegas. A great face-climbing test piece that will keep you electrified right to the end. A couple long runners would be useful to reduce rope drag. Consider bringing a light rack (1st bolt is very high, though mostly easy climbing up to it). Rap with a 70m rope.

5 out of 5 stars awesome

bold route- well worth the trouble getting up there. probably should be rebolted at some point, though. a light rack- probably a thin hands and hands piece, and a couple of medium nuts will get you up it. a 70m cord will get you down in one if you swing left.

5 out of 5 stars good route

i liked this route a ton. you need to have solid route finding skills for sure, and i suggest using a double rope lead because of the zig-zag. also, the only pro i used on the route was at the begining, and it was a #7 and #6 metolius. i hope that helps so you don't have to haul a whole rack up that approach. oh, and the approach stinks, but the climb is well worth it.
