Description:

Although an extreme sandbag, this route should not be missed. If you're only climbing at this level, be ready to French free the low crux.

3 out of 5 stars Ok

Not really into hard moves right off the deck into blah blah blocky stuff. Maybe its cuz the upper part was all wet, and the corner was shorter than I expected and not clean climbing at all. Cool waterfall but don't come out here as an 11 climber... wait till turkey beard is your objective otherwise this is a waste of time.

5 out of 5 stars great climb...rating right on

Did it as one pitch, though I did hang on a piece halfway up. The crux seemed to me to be right on, though the upper climbing is super pumpy. The crux is a bit easier than the crux of Safari Jive (5.11c), at Looking Glass. Skip all the pins and the bolt and get your own gear.
