Description:

Probably the best 5.9 trad route in all of Vantage. Increbible hand jambs and stems on a long and sustained 5.9 crack. A magnificent trad line. Decent rests for gear placements. You won't be disspointed in this gem.

3 out of 5 stars Excellent

Starts with thin hands and works up to #3 camalot size (I'd bring at least two of those). Excellent jam crack with few face holds. More of a calf pump for me.

3 out of 5 stars _

Quite sustained, a nice calf workout, and one of the few Coulee routes that didn't seem soft!
