Description:

Great climbing on crisp edges and sidepulls gets you past the initial headwall. Enjoyable face moves and mantels pass more positive holds, bringing you to the anchor ledge. A stick clip for the first bolt might be helpful. Interesting note: one climber, upon pulling onto the top ledge, found himself staring face to face with a large rattle snake. The rattler was traversing down the ledge to the lower end of the cliff.

4 out of 5 stars sounds like it

if this is the right route, this thing climbs like the slabby section of boardwalk for way longer. really cool rails. take a small set of cams or run it out.

3 out of 5 stars Surprised

The first head wall seams to be the crux but was surprised at the face above , a few hard moves between rails to the top. Can run the bolts alone or use a couple small cams on the top section.

3 out of 5 stars Sustained

Liked this one a lot. Felt there were some pretty sustain sections. Couple good rests but overall great non stop climbing
