3 out of 5 stars Pollished Start

This route is hard to get off the ground without using the tree. Once you get past the fist 10 ft, the route is a 5.6-5.7. But with the polished start of this route, I would call the start a 5.9 for sure.

3 out of 5 stars one tricky move

There is one tricky move that starts with a left hand side pull and right hand undercling. Also, I found the start to be a bit tenuous.

Top Rope Top Rope ascent by: CourtneyHenslee on 2009-01-14 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Top Rope from Roo Dog

I agree that this climb is not easy to get on at all. I lead Roo dog and used top rope on this one. I think i started from Roo Dog also. I think it needs a higher grade just for the entrance. But it is a nice climb to put a beginner on, granted they are small enough to be lifted ;-)
