Comments: I would go along with an R rating, though I judge it PG13. Skip the derision--I second Mr. DiSciullo's ideas of dropping that block and setting a bolt. Better my belayer had been safer. It is runout right off the usual belay station or the bolt would be redundant.

Been 13 months since last visit. LOTS of needed pruning and brush clearing everywhere I looked in Smoke Bluffs.

Comments: Rapped off yesterday, 2 ropes. Could not pull rope through single rap ring at top. Climbed back up to see nothing preventing rope pull--friction on small ring??? Moved knot a bunch down from there while rappeling again. Almost would not pull again but managed it. Recommend finding walk off. Glad the views and climb were worth the hassle.

Comments: The description comment is off--bad gear placements? Yes, I liked putting pro in before the first piton. There really is no other gear to place. This is a sport route. Yes, the first piton is a bit high and the rest are spread out. But, they are all very solid.
