4 out of 5 stars nice moderate 8 pitches

Although well bolted, the forth pitch traverse is slightly spooky.

Awsome rappel into the valley.Excellent eight pitches,with a little bit of everything,except a chimney.Leading this climb was a thrill.Ive been climbing
alot of Greg Ortons routes and theyre awesome!I highly recomend his guide books,and climbing all his routes.Some of the Best in Oregon,I believe.

4 out of 5 stars Vroom

Fun backcountry climbing. Will climb it again. Removed a couple hundred pounds of choss on our way up. Well bolted, and as the second on the trip I cranked on every loose thing I could. Nothing broke off except what I wiggled off intentionally. A helmet may be recomended.
