Description:

This is a climb visible from the trail to dead snag arette. The climb features 3 bolts and a mini-overhang. Very nice climb. Deceptively easy climbing, but difficult mental moves. Some bolts are spinners. EDIT, 2007: the first three bolts have been replaced by Monkey courtesy ASCA. A yellow TCU or medium nut protects between the third bolt and the anchor. Another young up-and-coming new-router has extended the route with bolts making a full 100' climb. Don't bother, it's crap. Someone chop the extension, please!

3 out of 5 stars Why leave one bolt out?

I know some people like a little trad in their sport but I don't want to haul my rack for one draw.

3 out of 5 stars Decent

The first part of the climb, going up and over the mini-roof, is pretty fun and really the only challenging/worthwhile part of the climb. Feet sort of disappear between the 2nd and 3rd bolt, but there's still plenty of grip. As stated in the description, don't bother climbing the bit after the first set of chains, that part is maybe a 5.8 at most.

4 out of 5 stars Stout

Felt stout for a 5.9 - maybe it was just the bottom mini-roof.
