4 out of 5 stars Fun lead

I didn't see the new bolts in the crack so I led this straight up the dirty lower face to the original first bolt. The newer crack variation is also fun with significantly better pro (2 more bolts!) and a nice transition to the face. The crux seemed to be about half way up, a couple moves where the holds aren't as good and the feet less solid.

4 out of 5 stars One of my favorites!

I sent platinum blonde last summer- it was my first 5.10. Woot. Fun, super easily accessible route... although the area is often crowded, as there's three easy routes nextdoor.

3 out of 5 stars pretty good 10a

It's a tiny bit tricky to set up the belay off the ground, but it's probably worth the effort since this is one of the best, and more easily accessible 10a's in the canyon.
