Comments: This route is no longer the first route on the left... also, it has been re-bolted. Great route!

Comments: I linked this one from Practice Climb, clipped a long runner to that anchor, and had no issues with rope drag. This link also makes for a super good pitch. The tree is still doing just fine as of now.

Comments: Linked this from Cro-Magnon, and it made for a great 5.10 link-up, although you want to be solid at the grade. The opening crux moves are harder than 5.9. It would make sense to me that, as stated above, something may have broken. At the very least, the move is now solid 5.10.

The other comment that caught my attention was the jug you grab to exit the crux being loose. It is loose and is about to pull off. When I grabbed it...it pulled off just a touch, and I'm not talking about flexing. The... more >>

Comments: Did this today with Teo Mavis. I agree with mountainhick...you want to be solid at the grade on this pitch.

We linked this into Ginseng Junkie, and it made for a fantastic .10a link-up, although Ginseng Junkie has a lot of loose rock, and if any of it pulled, it would potentially drop into parties on Gambit. That being said, it is a fun, rope stretching pitch (Ginseng) to the top.

Comments: HA! I guess I'll note that Paul said he doesn't like slabs...and he frequently climbs barefoot.

The only thing wrong with this route is that there isn't more of it. This is a great little route up a gorgeous lichen covered face with engaging technical moves. Well worth doing.

Comments: Kevin, you're just a pulling down machine. Great route with some really fun climbing on the lower half and the pumpy finish.
