Comments: Most of the walls face east and therefore experience late afternoon shade. (after 3 PM) Spring and fall are best, summer evenings work and winter mid-day is passable on sunny days.

Comments: The route could work with exfoliation, but both gear and rock suck right now. Bolts are from a hardware store. Hangers chewed up my draws even without putting any weight on them. Other hangers on route aren't as thick.
Routes to the right and left are fine, typical Ophir.

There is a new route between the 10D and 11 on the upper wall that is protected by poor homemade gear that is suspect and the rock is choss.
Suggest gear replacement or removal. Unsafe!
