Comments: Hah. Nice name on the climb. There was a nice body sized flake that was wedged in the upper crack. It gave you respite from a small section of OW. When I climbed to the flake it was moving! Luckily we both didn't dislodge it until we were past it. Now the climb has 15 feet+ of OW moves. It made a nice booming crash. Great lead on the climb, Toby.

Comments: This climb deserves three stars, it is excellent. The opening move is a hard mantle then it is Shelf climbing at its best with great pockets, and fun edging. There seems to be a mini-crux at the upper crack that is thin and powerful.

Comments: Has anyone tried to aid the 11b crack? I'm wondering because I've done the 9 traverse, but I would rather not do it again.

Comments: Wow. I guess I was way right, meaning on the arete. I remember that clip being a bit dicey for someone who leads at the 10a level. It is a fun route. One should definitely try it.

Comments: I believe this route is only 2 stars, because the last bolt on this route is way off route. The huecos and 10a climbing keep you on the arete, while the last bolt pulls you 7 feet to the right.

Comments: This a great route. It starts with easy climbing to a fun-awkward-balancy mantle, then finishes on a good slab. The climb seems a bit stiff for the grade.

Comments: This is a superb route. Technical and sustained moves throuhout on good pockets with long reaches. For a 10+ this is a must do climb!! It deserves three stars.
