Description:

What a waste! Whoever bolted this is an idiot! It takes gear. And the route just sucks! And thegrade they gave it is way wrong. I'd say 5.5.

2 out of 5 stars Relax, it is a practice route.

It is what it is. It is short and if you are a hot shot I'm sure it will not interest you. For some of us mortals it is a good place to warm up or show a beginner a few things.

1 out of 5 stars Chop????

Don't chop this route....even though it takes gear, no trad leader in their right mind would even think about doing it. Maybe a good one for someone who wants to be a trad leader, they can plug gear, and clip bolts for uber security and have fun thinking they're leading trad....

3 out of 5 stars my first crack

Was ok. Wasn't too hard and was kind of boring. It was really short.
