Doug Foust at the pitch 3, sloping alcove belay.  Going 15 feet above this would bring you to a good 12" varnished ledge that could be more comfortable, and would make pitch 4 less of a rope stretcher.

Comments: Fun route, deserves its two stars. With a little better rock it would get three, but I think the rock quality keeps it at two.

The top of pitch 2 and 4 bolted anchors could use some love. We backed both up as best we could with what we had. Fun day out.

Comments: Four star climb in a a four star setting on four star rock with a 2 star approach. The best pure crack I have been on in Red Rock so far. Would really like to see more people getting on this. Extra incentive? We got a #3 stuck on the third pitch so you don't have to carry as many up there (and you might get a free cam in the process).

My thoughts on the beta:

The approach is no longer hard to find or heinous at all via Dale's Trail and the North side gully. It is extremely well cair... more >>

Comments: Brought a single set of cams and nuts, placed where I needed to, ended up on top with half of my cams and nuts left. Don't see where you could ever put a double rack - but if you like the extra weight go for it.

Most people above are correct. PG13 at best in my opinion, all of the gear, when you get it, is really good. No moves harder than 5.10b and the rock quality is phenomenal. You get gear everywhere you need it.

I suppose it is bold, but I enjoy that so I found this climb quite nice... more >>

Comments: An extra #3 would be the right piece - although with two of them it made it very casual. A third would be for the very faint hearted. Slightly more physical than I expected.

Comments: We easily top-roped this climb and rappelled with a single 70M line with room to spare. A fun, exciting climb on great rock. Reminded me a bit of Sensuous Mortician on the Necromancer wall. Be cognisant getting to the bolt, as it would require a static catch from the belayer if you fell just below it to keep you off the ground.

Comments: Once you get out of the stem-box/chimney/awkward fun, you will continue up the crack for about 15 feet. You will then step right around the corner on to the face. The slings are somewhat hidden and out of sight another 15 feet up and to the right.

If you continue straight up this crack you won't reach any rappel tat. Make sure to keep looking right as turn the corner.

Comments: Used a 70M rope and was able to rappel within two feet of the ground. Walked about 20 feet away from the base of the crag to pull the rope and had no issue.

On lead I pulled the moves under the crux utilizing a fist jam that was very not off-width in my experience. My partner followed completely face-climbing, which like the poster above, likely makes it a tad harder.

Overall, excellent climb. Fun techy stemming at the bottom, a bit pumpy in the middle, all on stellar rock.
