Comments: I really think this is a underrated route for Crowders. Looks like the harder (right side of bolts) line has flaked out and disintegrated over the years, but the left side line is still very good. Big moves to to holds that are better than you think. Until you get to the the LARGE Creaky Flake (5th to 6th bolt). Remember pull down not out. The traversing is fun too. Thanks to Diabe for this one.

Comments: Humm, pretty sure the topo , from that onsite plaque showed differently. I was going off it. I removed it for now.

Comments: This route currently has a tree fall on it above the 2 second bolt. I guess you could sling it for more protection, but it is directly in the way of the route.

Comments: We used a 70m and 60m rope together. You could do the rappel with a single 70m.

Comments: Fun climb. We did this on Saturday, only noticed 3 other parties on the climb. We were able to do it without place 1 piece of pro. Many thanks to those who put this up. Just FYI, it's still a little dirty and lichen-ish, but it's safe climbing.

Comments: Climb this this past weekend. The cable is in good condition, and the top ledge can support about 2 parties at the same time while waiting to use the rap rings.
