Comments: Fun route with some tricky moves down low. We didn't use any gear. The only downside to this route is the moves to the right where you join the other route. It was a little disappointing to run out of bolts and have to move right to join the other line. Extending these bolts is prudent to avoid rope drag.

Comments: Really nice line with a fun crux. This route will also go on gear. A 0.75 to protect the crux and a few nuts and small cams will work above. Nice job, Adam.

Comments: Sorry Josh - I have to disagree - this is not a 3 star route. We all agreed it was MAYBE 1. It's uneventful and still really dirty. It's bolted well and is a nice, easy warmup for the harder stuff in the area or a good lead for new leaders. Will be a nice line once cleaned up and will likely warrant a star.

Comments: We felt the first pitch was no harder than 5.7. The big unattached flake is still there at the start of the second pitch and is probably more solid than it looks. If you do the third pitch it is short and has 5 bolts. The view from the top is worth the effort. Also - we were able to rap from the top all the way back to the first belay ledge with a 70M.
