2 out of 5 stars Decent Climb if You're in the Area

A little run out and lots of eliminate holds that are marked x, but decent climb if you're solid at the grade.

4 out of 5 stars Just sweet

Love these routes, No Weld and Wintermute. Tough but doable for the average climber. Pumpy and taler than listed here. These routes have to be at least 70 to 80 feet tall. Avoid the blocky/chossy section to the right. It is entirely unnecessary to use that section.

4 out of 5 stars Great Mix of Fun/Hard

Bottom half was quite easy...5.7/8 ish. Get up nice and high under the roof before you pull it as the hands are small and a good reach past the roof (I placed a small link cam in the horizontal crack as it's about 4 feet over the last bolt).

Above the roof it gets pretty thin and I'd rate it a solid 5.9 to the anchors. Look for small toe holds and wide hands.

Overall great climb...easy and tough in different parts and long enough to make for a great ride!
