Comments: How do you do this route? I was trying to jam in the roof crack and scum with my knees, but I never got farther than the lip of the roof crack. Any beta for a poor, confused climber?

Comments: How do you do this route? I had to french free the crux. This is the only 5.10 I have ever not been able to complete.

Comments: The first 25 feet of this thing is the most difficult to read rock I have ever climbed.

Comments: Maybe I didn't get this climb, but I thought it had absolutely nothing going for it.

Comments: This route actually protects fairly well. The crux is protected by a very very small RP.

Comments: The first twenty five feet of this route are so polished that they completely take the fun out of it.

Comments: I placed four golds, four reds, two blues, and a green and felt comfortable. You can certainly do with less, but if you are a crack wuss like me, a bigger rack might make you feel more comfortable. Also, I may have broken my foot jamming this thing.

Comments: While inside my comfort level, I found this climb to be much more serious than this page implies. Expect to find at least a few 50 foot runouts on the second half of the route. By the time you are that high up, you are fairly dialed in, but a fall would certainly be possible if you were not careful. I personally found the crux to be the moves between the bolts on pitch 2 and the move above the first bolt on pitch 3. The "crux" on Pitch 6 is no more than 5.6 or 5.7.

Comments: You know I would. I have been climbing a Currahee lately to detox from all the long drives out to sandstone.

Comments: Does it go out the roof on those flakes and then traverse right onto the face?

Comments: This thing kept spitting me off above the first bolt. Hard slab moves.

Comments: This route is no longer the furthest right. There are now two routes to the right of it, one a nine and the other an eleven.
