Description:

Start left up ramp to a left facing corner. 9 pitches can be done in 4 with 60 m rope - - Update (8/04): I had problems finding the shallow right-facing corner above the splendid crack on p2. There was a shadow (scar) where it (probably) used to be, but instead you have some harder, run-out slab - we bailed from the small sloping ledge there (if you bring a hex you can have a nice exchange for a new tech friend!)

4 out of 5 stars Very Nice!

Great route, less classic than Moby Grape, but a good bit easier! The first two pitches were great. Pitch three and four were ok. Pitch five was basically 4th class with one fifth class move. Pitches six and seven were great! Especially pitch seven!!!

3 out of 5 stars Consolation Prize

A fine second-tier rock climb, worth doing on a busy day or after ticking Canon's classics, similar in difficulty and quality to Sea of Holes on Whitehorse. No problems following route description in Syke's "Secrets of the Notch."
