Comments: Super route! The crux is the start passing the bolts. Very very desperste if you are short.
And whomever put the bolts in should have their head examined. They dont even come close to protecting the crux moves..... In fact a ground fall would happen if you blow it after the first one and a ledge fall after the second. I really dont think Hong would approve of the shitty placements.

Comments: Great addition to the OW world. Dirty.... Yes! But the climbing is so fun with a very very exciting exit out of the chimney into the squeeze.

So superfun!!!!
Too small for knees but perfect stacks and calf bars. And the finish is awesome.

Comments: General info:

Approach takes about one hour if there is a good trail. Approximately 1.8 miles and 1,000 vertical feet gained to base of route.

Sun all day! Unless cloudy of course…. LOL

190 feet to the top (give or take). One pitch if all ice, maybe two if mixed….
Rap route with two 60m ropes from tat around tree… bring extra cord/rap rings to replace existing if needed.

Comments: Fun Fun Fun….but still so hard……..

For me, double set of Master Cams (blue-orange), I also use a BD 0.3 and 0.4. Save a baby blue for the top.

Comments: What a super-fun line. Went back for another jog last weekend. For me it starts with big hands, goes to super raptly hands (thank goodness the start is easy) then the meat of the climb is glorious fists for me. Mostly big BD #3 but a couple of BD #3.5 works too. I don't think the new BD #4 fits……

A 70 meter rope doesn't work unless you use many tricks…….. we were way too short but had a tag line along so no problem.

Comments: Yes it is pretty short but super fun moves and great rests. The route gobbles gear in the thin hands range. The first roof/flake/step-around is fun and not too hard. Look around…..its all there. The final bulge is the meat of the climb…….much steeper than it looks, but there are plenty of good (deep) hand jams……you will just loose your feet for a move or two. Fun route!

Comments: The anchor has two bolts!

Fun route. Dont be discourage cause it looks dirty up there (you don't climb that way!!!…… start in the bombay type slot and after about 15 feet or so step/ chimney/stem right and pull over the fun flake. Pay attention to gear placement and use long slings. An old #4 is useful at the top.
