Comments: We got on this route the other day I thought I'd provide a few comments. It is a good route with a few high quality pitches. However, a few spots are very overgrown and need a scrubbing - mostly P5 and P7. This would drastically improve the quality of experience on the route. It is currently climbable, just not that pleasant for those couple pitches.

We had doubles to 6" with an extra 4" piece and this seemed to work fine.

For any short leaders, be careful on the crux pitch as you're forced ... more >>

Comments: Awesome route!

For those looking to do this climb, but hesitant because of the 'R' rating, I did not find it as bad as the guidebook and other comments suggests. The crux on the final pitch is at the bolt and thereafter it is maybe 5.10 for a while. Although it is runout, it is not 5.11. This is for both tall and short people.

Comments: Awesome route! It appears that two new shiny bolts have been added to the 'R' section on pitch two. It is definitely no longer run out.

Comments: Although the gear can be finicky at a few spots, I disagree with the comment that it is PG13/R. The only time you are more than a body length away from a solid piece, it is sub 5.9 terrain.
It is a fantastic route!

Comments: I do not think this route reserves the 'R' rating. I think that 'PG' is more representative of the 11a section described above. Sure, there are several 'R' sections of 5.8 and under, including traverses, but nothing in the 5.11- range.

Comments: To reiterate... the last ~ 15 to 20 feet is only protectable with BD #4, despite what the guidebook suggests!
