Description:

The Falcon guide for this area grades this at .12a. It's more like .11a. (not to be confused with Pogues Cave, which starts way back in the cave and is genuinely .12a). Start on on a ledge and go out the roof past two or three bolts on huge jugs. Pull the lip (crux) and go to the top.

5 out of 5 stars Nice gym route

Book described this route as 5.11b. Anywho, it is fun route. Very short and pumpy. Where in the world anyone find a route with such a big jugs and such a steep angle?

4 out of 5 stars hmm

book i had had it at 11c. i'd maybe suggest 11b. the roof is easy but loads of fun.

edit: thinking about the golden stairs (11b on the tower) i realize that this probably should be at 11a.
