4 out of 5 stars under-rated

despite the cobwebs and obvious lack of use, this route was tons of fun. while neighboring climb's were wet, this climbed the dry patch.

5 out of 5 stars It got me smilin' :)

This was one of the few routes at the lake that I never been on. Probably because of the wet factor. Got to do it recently. This is a quality route. The finger crack down low was challenging but get through it and you'll get a great rest. The rest of it is very doable and fun.

Do this climb... Its incredible. Quality climbing all the way to the top. It will help if you have finger crack skills. Prob should have been a mixed line... Shame on whoever bolted the crack.
