Comments: Skip the first bolt or bring shoulder length draws for the first two bolts.

98% of this route is 5.5. The move past the fifth bolt, however, is not.

Comments: I felt a directional on the second to last bolt made this route very top-ropeable.

Agreed that going left eases up the crux substantially. Puts it more in the 5.8 range. Move past the first bolt is pretty fun.

Comments: I think it's incredibly misleading to give this route a 5.7 rating. Yes, there is a 30 ft 5.7 variation on the second to last pitch, but that doesn't make the route itself 5.7. In reality, this route barely reaches 5.4.

Anyways, a great easy alpine route with a brutal approach but beautiful views.

The first two pitches (4th - 5.2) and the odd approach gully can be skipped by continuing on the trail to Upper Lake and taking a grassy/3rd class ramp directly to the notch between the 1st and 2nd ... more >>

Comments: Was carrying a #4 C4 in the pack for another route we intended to do that day and ended up pulling it out for the top of the P1 belay. Seemed to fit in better than any other pieces and I wanted my one #3 with me for the next pitch.

Comments: Done this route twice both times with different second pitches. Might have missed it, but I don't think this route can be done easier than 5.5-5.6. Awesome position and fun route though. To me, the descent was the mental crux (4th to low 5th traverse and dirty gully descent).

Comments: The slab finish is a bit "tingly" and unprotected but can be avoided by traversing to the left and finishing on Borachone.

Comments: One 5.7ish move at the first bolt. The climbing up to the first bolt is fun but difficult to protect on layered and flaky rock. I found a #3 Camalot a great home between the third bolt and the anchor.

Comments: Agree that cams are not needed on this route. The walk off to the left veers to the right a bit and down an dirty(ish) gully.
