Description:

This route is a piece of Sunset history. The climbing is definantly "old school" and surprisingly throws a few curve-balls with route-finding. Slabby, hard to protect climbing, leads to an amazing flake/roof which you can get your head behind and "rest". then up a tricky finger crack and up to easier ground on top. I find it a sandbag at 5.8

5 out of 5 stars another classic

takes everything from a big cam to Lowe balls and small nuts. Don't get your ass stuck in the roof. go left (exposed) from the ledge near the top.

5 out of 5 stars Fun and strenuous

Seems like a lot of routes on the north end are really stiff for the grade, and this is one of them. Fun lead the whole way, and it rarely lets up. As others have said, there's plenty of protection; you just need to know how to use something other than cams. Highly recommended!
