Description:

An often neglected route because of its long distance from the main area and its mountaineerish start, this route goes into a really nice crack system after about 30 ft. About 50 yards right of Blonde Ambition, climb an easy face into a blocky chimney. Pull an easy overhang and proceed into a nice handcrack to a small ledge. Continue up another crack to a pleasant slab and on to the top. Note: this route is much taller than it appears from the base.

3 out of 5 stars Very straightforward and well protected; good for a first time trad leader

First half of the route is mindless climbing and then you pull through the 5.6 layback and start cruising the easy handcrack above which really doesn't require crack skills.

I did this as a "mock lead" -- led the route placing protection, but on top rope. The route is a fun climb and a good introduction to trad leading. Thanks to Denmark for critiquing my gear placements. I plan to lead this for real next time!

Nice fun route.. Good warm up to get the feel for the rock and get used to placing gear. I liked the start and the slab section.
