4 out of 5 stars Aptly named

When you see this route, you understand the name. What a great route. As previously stated, when you see this corner, you have to do it. It's just such a great looking line. Bring large size camalots for the last part of the pitch.

One of those lines that when you see it from a distance you know that you have to give it a go! The open book walls have superb friction and the edge of the crack has a clean edge that allows for a solid lay back it's entire lenght. The crack starts at #.75, and widens to#1,#2,#3,#4 (black diamond chamalot sizes) as you work your way up.

5 out of 5 stars great views

Excellent climb though a bit short. Not sure I'd call this the best climb at Old Rag. View at the top is breathtaking (especially with an autumn sunset - and yes it was a long dark walk out ).

5 out of 5 stars Sketchy anchors!

I would as many others highly suggest giving this one a try. It is easy to find, offers great views and some of the most enjoyable climbing you can come across. The anchors however are a little sketchy (you can manipulate them pretty easily, we decided that day to back them up with some static line around the boulder at the top).

5 out of 5 stars Best climb in the area

Tackled this gem right at sunset. Fun laybacking and stemming, although the route is a bit short. I was glad my partner talked me into taking a #4 and #5 along for the ride -- they were very welcome additions at the top when my forearms were beginning to expire.
While topping out, I was kicked in the eyes with beautiful sunset colors over autumn hills below. A very memorable climb, indeed.
