2 out of 5 stars Overrated!

I do not understand why people are so psyched to climb on glass polished crap. This route would be a classic if it wasent polished like ice. All of the routes in this area are incredibly polished; so much that it's not even fun. I find it funny that the guidebook says this area offers the best sport in American Fork, I found it to be among the worst. There are routes only 100 feet away that are better. It's too bad, I can see how these routes used to be mega-classic. But with all the use, they have been reduced to 2-star polished ice climbs.

5 out of 5 stars first 10d!

Amazing climb. It's obviously well traveled- some of the holds are pretty greasy, but it is still one of my favorites thus far. LOVED some of the moves on this climb. Seriously, I cannot express how fun of a route this is. Try it.
