Description:

Highly Recommended! This route is very committing for the grade. Get good beta, especially if 5.9 is the top of your lead experience. The guide book we used said the rappel from this route is down a tree filled gulley. After we did this rappel (with much difficulty) we were told by some locals that a newer, better rappel is just north of this gulley and possibly 200' south of Tits and Beer. With 2 ropes, two rappels to the ground.

Fun multi pitch. The diagonal crack was the most fun for me. Exposure on the crux with a weird move. If you are short. good luck with pulling that bulge.

5 out of 5 stars Great protection and exposure

The crux is height dependent, felt 5.9 for me, but 5.10 for my short wife. Great protection where you need it. This is a fun one and not a fright fest that it is made out to be.

5 out of 5 stars T & B

Like every classic route, this one's a lot easier than it looks from the ground. Moves off the belay on p. 2 are difficult and committing, the Michelin Man Bulge on p. 3 are quite manageable once you figure them out - at least the gear is good for this part. A great route, still solid afte being upgraded to 5.9. Climbed with Mark B., I led the odd pitches. He thinks that the crux on Patrick Ewing is easier than the third pitch of this route. Rapped off a homemade station after fourth pitch. A beautiful sunny day on a route I've wanted for years, the best of this trip for sure.
