I did not down climb; thus, i plummeted. Good holds do not appear, so find them when you need them.

Nice route. Didn't see a couple key holds so I ended up downclimbing to the good beginning rest and rethinking. Tricky onsite for me. Cool route, well worth the walk to the Sunset Wall to have a go on it.

Really cool climbing,with good rests throughout the climb.Feels more like 5.10b+ to me now,but back in 05 it felt headier.

5 out of 5 stars block to block

Really neat climb the way it goes block to block early on, then transitions into a headwall. As many times as I did get on this I don't remember ever figuring out what the crux move was, it simply had difficult sections, but had a good flow to it. Unfortunately, if you were going to twist an ankle at the rsnake it would probably be in the first two or three bolts of this, back on previously used ledges.
