Comments: Definitely read Simon's comment if considering this route and you aren't comfortable at higher grades. The protection for the majority of the lower crux section was less than ideal, as the ice was full of air pockets. However, you can get a solid cam at a good rest if you look for it. The upper section is much easier but still no joke if you were to be pumped from the bottom portion. I found a nut placement up there as well.

I uploaded a photo to show what the crux section can look like. The o... more >>

Comments: First and second pitch are nothing special. The 3rd pitch is super fun. If you want a 4 star climb, link the Oscar corner to Strictley roof, and then continue on to Shockley's 3rd Pitch. The 4 stars here is for the 3rd pitch alone.

Also, my follower left a .4 Camalot at the 3rd pitch belay under the roof on 9/20 @ ~10am. If you bootied it and would like to return it to me, you will be rewarded with several beers at the Brauhaus and loads of good karma.

Comments: Had the pleasure of climbing this with the first ascensionists the day after it was completed. Sweet route. Harder than what I normally climb so I can't honestly give it a grade, but 10+ sounds about right to me. Very cool moves through the lower half lead to some thin face climbing higher up. Definitely a worthwhile climb if your into mixed bolt/gear routes.

Comments: Do not climb if you are not comfortable pulling 5.4 moves off the deck with serious ankle breaking potential in the event of a fall. Blocky ledges below would not allow for a soft landing. I really do not recommend this for anyone who isn't comfortable leading at least 5.4.
