Description:

5.9+. The plus is serious. Be careful. This climb is fun but it's a helluva way from the first bolt to the second. I threw in a brown tricam in between them. Crux is at/above the second bolt to the fourth bolt. Go directly over the fourth bolt for a 10a variation.

4 out of 5 stars Good route

The runouts between the bolts is long but the climbing is good. Since it was the first long runout I have done in years the climb had me on edge, but solid holds at the bolts inspired confidence.

After the 3rd bolt i think, where you have to go right was pretty tough. Fun route though.

3 out of 5 stars mixed, ran it out

I was too lazy to bring the rack down so I ran it out between bolts 1 and 2--heady.

Damn, +'s... really hard for the "5.9" grade
