Comments: Oh wow. The holds are HUGE on this route. Jugfest anyone? It might be more like 5.5 with small bits of 5.6 than anything else. Fantastic fun.

Comments: I had a difficult time on the hand crack on pitch one. It was difficult for me to get my hands far enough back into the crack to effectively jam due to my shoulders getting in the way / my arms not being long enough.

Comments: I've backpacked out to the Gorge to attempt a descent into Tehipite valley - at which we failed, but the formations and the climbing looks amazing. I'd love to go back. Someone needs to climb out here with me!

Comments: The upper pitches are most definitely not in the shade in late June. I just climbed the complete route two days ago and we got cooked. Plus, the descent is kinda a pain in the dark especially when you have a slow and scared partner.

Comments: This thing is so not 10a! I call major sandbag. the crux is short, but it's a hard SOB. I can climb 10a and I was nowhere near sending the crux. It's at least 10c/d. The first pitch seems like honest to god 10a. I liked the first pitch best.

Comments: Amazing climb. Totally worth doing. The view and exposure up top is impeccable. Climbing this thing made my day.

Comments: The P1 crack was tons of fun, but once that ended I felt like unroping and hiking to the top. Didn't lend itself to a sustained 'multi-pitch' feel. Still that crack was great.
