Comments: Recently did this route and I see that I made the mistake that TJ warned about with regard to going high and relying on a loose flake for protection. I suspect that way is quite intuitive so just realize that doing the traverse and roof may have to be done with essentially no pro. The climbing is fairly mellow up there, but use a light technique so as not to pull any loose stuff off of which there seems to be an abundance. Too bad cause it's quite fun climbing.

Comments: Nice little route. At the top one can choose to follow the crack or go up good knobs and exit on the face. Fairly good protection.

Comments: I agree with Jason in that this seems stout for a 5.6. Protection is a bit tricky to arrange down low.

Comments: Led this years ago and I can confirm that this is pretty stout for the grade. A great route to be sure, just be aware that the climbing is somewhat sustained. I can still remember all these years later how much fun the little roof section was. Have fun.

Comments: I climbed this after a full day of rain which I think tipped it over to the unpleasant side of the fun/hard work dividing line. Many of the holds were still pretty wet and slimy. I'd like to do it again on a dry day. Either way this is a beautiful area to spend some time.

Comments: Climbed this a couple of weeks ago and found it an enjoyable route. We went astray on the second pitch and climbed to up to the left of the top of the first pitch. I believe that the correct strategy is to climb up to a bit of a ramp/traverse and move right over into the corner system. The 3rd pitch is fun and way casual. Nice views of NEWS and Cascades high country from the summit.

Comments: Climbed this a couple of weeks ago and I really enjoyed it. the climbing is fine, but nothing really special, but the setting, scenery, views and location.....that's what make this route spectacular. It is probably closer to 5.5 than 5.6.

Comments: Not sure what the deal is here. Is the crack allowed? If so how much can you use it? Seemed contrived to me at least without more beta on the actual route.

Comments: TR'd this today and really thought it was better than 1 star. Very enjoyable route with balancy moves on fairly good rock. My brother and I each climbed the top section differently. I agree with Josh's comments about leading this route. I may try that later after having TR'd it and scoped out the pro.

Comments: I practiced my first toprope solo on this route the other day thinking it was a 5.8. Whew, I was learning a new system as well as battling this harder than expected climb. Balancey moves down low lead to a ramp which seems much more delicate than you'd think from looking at it from the ground. Then the upper crack is a bit thuggish to be sure. Good thing I taped up. Even with my mind split between figuring out my TR system and the moves on this route I'd say 9+ seems right.

Comments: I led this last week and was surprised to find it a little more pumper than I expected. Be careful while placing pro to not take up your jams.

Comments: I led this last year and found it very fun. I especially liked the last moves over the little bulge.

Comments: I led this last year and found it enjoyable, well protected and clean. The moves over the little roof are fun.

Comments: I looked up at this from the parking area of the Road Cut area and saw this intriguing looking wide crack. I scrambled up to it and soloed it to the top. It's not as good as it looks from the parking area. The first half is fine, but the second half is dirty and full of dirt. I don't see enough traffic to ever clean it up.

Comments: I led this yesterday and found it a little more stout than it looked from the ground. The problem for me was placing pro without taking up my hand and finger jams. Delicate moves and a fun roof at the end make this worth doing.

Comments: I did this with my brother many years ago. We were supposed to swap leads, but every time it was his turn he looked up and said "You Lead." The crux pitch had me blabbering like I was gonna die. I did make it and was pretty stoked! I remember sometime later doing some routes at the Bunny Slopes and watching a progression of 5 or 6 parties attempt this route and to the last they all bailed off before doing the crux pitch. That made me feel pretty good!!

Comments: I did this many years ago and thought it was a great romp up a nice route. There's a rap line somewhere I recall with a nice final rap over a big overhang. Lots of fun.

Comments: This is a must do route. Totally unique and perfect for someone looking for something a little different. It pros well, but won't be sewn up. Get on it and have fun!

Comments: I followed this last March. I found the moves somewhat delicate with 3 distinct crux sections... one on each tier. Worth doing.
