A really fun route! Starts with an awkward wide crack, then ambles up the column face. Tons of great balance moves on small holds. I thought this route was a great introduction to the column style face climbing found on many of the routes at Tieton. Its only detraction, that you need to place trad. pro at the start or run it out 25+ feet past a 5.9 move to the first bolt. This will keep the sport climbers off an otherwise awesome sport climb.

Descent Options:

Rappel from chains.
