4 out of 5 stars nice route

Short crux section, but the whole route was fun. Did it in 3 pitches. Nice short route and a good first route in the Cascades.

5 out of 5 stars Cool short route

Just climbed this with the gf (fell at the crux) and think it deserves some stars...not as sustained as some moderate WA pass free routes (the passanger, freedom rider) but the top three pitches are really good and make for a pleasant short outing.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Led my share of pitches including the crux pitch. Took one fall at the crux onto a purple DMM. Got it clean on the second try. Route was shorter than I was expecting.

Route is also rated 5.10d depending on source.
