Comments: I'm not a fan of OW so the first part of the top was a challenge for me, as was the start. Wished I had 2x Camalot #5s so I didn't have to push up the protection. It's fun to do once, though. I found the thin crack down low a bit greasy from traffic, which made it tougher than it looked. Also, one of the bolts at the top anchor is loose.

Comments: We read up on the beta so we wouldn't have route finding issues, and it worked. Started on the trail at 6am. We did the common start traversing from the trail at about 8600 ft and climbing the loose rock to gain the ridge at 8:45am. Mostly 3rd and 4th class (like others have said, you can make it easy or hard pretty much the entire ridge). We stuck to the east of the ridge at the 3rd tower to avoid a rappel or crazy down climb.

Comments: There was some confusion as to the start of the climb because the two large cracks aren't necessarily visible/obvious from the switchback angle.

I've added a beta photo with a big arrow pointing out the start of the climb from the angle we could see from the trail. Going up the talus field was easy compared to some others I've traveled. The climb itself is very doable solo/n... more >>

Comments: Really enjoyed this climb - worth doing, but know it's not a 5.6. Definitely sandbagged. The quality of the route though is great - pitch 3 was my favorite. I agree that there are good tree belays if you keep the first pitch short. Small gear (sometimes not very well protected), but I could have used a 3 up there. Finished in 6 pitches. The 5th pitch was interesting and we realized at that point that the route had become harder than 5.6. We had climbed Sahara Terror the day before and this was... more >>
