Odd start gaining first ledge (that is often dirty). After bolt #2, climb along the large, obvious crack. Find a good knee bar or two in the crack. At bolt #5, go right to finish off the climb. Jugs make up the entire route, but they'll give you a good pump.

Decent route. The start of the deck is a bit harder if shorter. You have to use some crimps to get to the jug whereas taller climbers will just reach the jug. Pumpy but fun.

Watch out for the poison ivy.

4 out of 5 stars need to return to this for RP

2011JAN1: think i followed it after Joel one time a while ago.

2012SEP23: Equinox climbing! A fine line with a scary if you think about it run out over the starting deck to #3, making #2 fairly pointless except to keep you up on that deck with a broken ankle and a rope burn on the scrotum. I digress. Once you get #3 in place there's great protection for the next 2 bolts that are spaced quite close together (go figure here but not above the deck).

The line is excellent though! Just be mindful of getting solidly to #3. :)

4 out of 5 stars fun route

enjoyed this route; pumpy. found the clipping jug too late, so fell at the top on the first go, but clean on 2nd run.
