Description:

It starts almost in the same spot as Jim Dandy but go just a little right and climb on to the ledge then just follow the bolts. There is also two pitons on this route that I used they seemed to be pretty solid.Bring a light rack of small nuts and cams up to #1.A real fun climb!you will do some good traversing.A little intimidating for a 5.6, at least for me.The second pitch isn't nearly as fun, you finish up on lunch ledge where you can go to the right and walk down.You can rappel down from the first pitch but you will need two ropes.

3 out of 5 stars fun route

lots of exposed traversing. Take small to medium cams to supplement bolts and pins. Takes 2 70 meter ropes to reach ground.

4 out of 5 stars More Fun Than Jim Dandy

We were looking for a couple of quick routes before a Mtn bike ride and chose this one along with My Route so that we could just walk off the top when finished. I lead both pitches. The holds leading to the first bolt are starting to polish from traffic and were a little slick. The only difficult spot is where the route trends to the right from the ledge on Jim Dandy but there are fixed pins and bolts. The belay was being used so I made a gear belay. The second pitch is very easy and leads up to Lunch Ledge. There is no need for any additional pro but ample opportunies exist for those who like more. I have climbed this route multiple times and it is always fun.

4 out of 5 stars Fun little warmup

We decided to climb this as a warmup before my first lead. Great climb to get my head right.

3 out of 5 stars Excellent

Excellent alternative to Jim Dandy. Doesn't see as much traffic but well worth doing. Placed 1 extra #4 nut i believe other than clipping the bolts.
