4 out of 5 stars Long and Positive

Super Positive, but a long climb makes for a good route (used most of a 60m). I would probably rate more a 5.7 than 5.8 due to the super positive holds with no unprotected moves or friction work required.

4 out of 5 stars good route

This was a cool route. It had a very nice view of Hood from the top and had fun climbing throughout the middle to the top of the climb. I'd happily go back and do it again.

3 out of 5 stars A worthwhile climb for a day at French's

A giant chunk came out within the last few months. It proceeded to roll down the hill, smashing through bushes and ricocheting off trees until it was out of earshot. Kinda scary.
