5 out of 5 stars a gem

Amazing route. The initial wall is a little heady and techy but beautiful.

5 out of 5 stars Fun fun and more fun

P1 is thin, slabby and farily runout. P2 is the money pitch. At 5'2" everyone said that I would not be able to pull the roofs. Not so...It was pretty soft 10b roof climbing. Easy peasy to huge jugs. So much fun, can't wait to repeat.

Red Point Red Point ascent by: blueeyedclimber on 2010-08-28 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Super fun Roof!

I remember the guidebook saying go right and I ended up going too far and having trouble seeing where to exit the roof. I realized my mistake and had to backtrack and take out gear and just got too pumped. I thought I might not have enough energy to pull the roof at this point, so I tried to downclimb. It was a little too steep for that. I fell. So, knowing that I should be able to send this without problem, I lowered back to the anchor, untied, pulled the rope and then sent without issue. But, I guess I get a redpoint.
