Comments: This is a rough representation of only the first 3 pitches, looking from below the 4th class scramble (which may not, in our case, have a fixed line).

It the route looks circuitous due to the perspective. This photo is only meant to get you to the climb itself. Keep an eye on the square white patch in the lower right of the photo. The start of the climb has a bolt at chest height.

Comments: As of the date of this post, the fixed line is no longer in place, so do not rely on it to find the start of the route. For a general idea of where the first 5.7 pitch is, keep an eye out for a wide crack that leads up to the left of a 15' white patch. The bolt line is just the the left of the crack, and eventually enters the crack.

The climbing up to the base is 4th class and is easily scrambled, just beware of loose blocks. Fun alpine sport climb with thoughtful climbing.

Comments: Low end 12c is a misnomer in my opinion. It felt on par with 12c's at Smith, therefore I'm pretty confident it is in the 12+ category somewhere. Additionally, it is 13- when it's basking in the sun...

Comments: This would probably be difficult without chalk leading the way, but it truly is pretty straight forward and protectable. Aim for the 'gun sight' crack weakness up high just below the belly ledge.

Comments: So I just waltz up to the bottom of this route after doing Running Man, and I'm all like, "yeah, one more pitch". This thing felt bold, exposed and sustained. Not your run of the mill 10d. Screw your head on straight and crimp criptically. Without chalk to lead the way this route is 5.11 most certainly. A 70 will get you down from the top as mentioned, and a trim rack up to 1.5" will suffice, along with some narrow headed Master Cams in the finger size. Worth doing! Once.

Comments: Nice hardware at the top of the photo... is this a good representation of most of the bolting here?

Comments: Ok well... Maybe I wasn't having an "on" day, but the top moves of this were pretty awkward and hard for 11c. An interesting route for sure, but given my experience I can't justify 11c or 4 stars. It is bolted very well, just....awkward.

Comments: I found this route to have good movement on TR; Leading the rig would require a hefty sack of sorts and good gear fiddling.
