Lots of loose rock and runouts! Not a route to be taken lightly. The first three pitches are rather loose and unsettling, with lots of traversing. The rock gets more solid on the 4th pitch. At the 5th and 6th pitches, get ready for some amazing exposure! Traversing, overhanging 5.11b on the 6th pitch is one of the best 5.11 trad pitches in OR. The 7th and 8th pitches follow more loose runout rock, until angle eases for another 100 feet or so of 4th class to the ridge top. The descent takes about an hour, and involves plenty of ridge traversing and scrambling loose rock. Despite the loose rock and runout nature of the route, the 5th and 6th pitches make it worthwhile. I call it grade IV because it's not a route that climbs fast, unless you have it wired.
I think Ire510s ascent is a lie, I doubt he actually climbed it... but thasts jsut me. Great route. Totally dangerous, I highly reccomend future generations stear clear. Un less you like 5.11 climbing 40 feet of old 1/4 bolts, the go check it!!! I rope soloed it in 1998 it was one of the coolest experinces of my life. The biby below the roofts was insane!!!
