5 out of 5 stars Great route!

Great variety, great position, a gem. Hand size is always relative in the dez. If you jam 3.5" cracks comfortably, you'll be fine. If you find yourself insecure on cupped wide-hand jams in that size, take at least four #3 cams or #3.5 friends. No need for long ropes, 50m will suffice. Last pitch is the show stopper--it moves left a bit, so look well to the climber's right for the rap anchors. Enjoy cooling your heels over 400' of air on the rap!

Incredible route, especially the last 2 pitches. I slipped off once following the last pitch. The rappell was absolutely terrifying...30 feet out from the wall, many hundreds of feet above the ground. I couldn't look down!
