Because this was listed as "possibly the best route on the island" by John Byrnes, I just HAD to try it. Unfortunately, I was forced to top-rope rather than lead this beauty since no other climbers in my party could ascend the grade. When you can't get up something at the point, you don't just go back to the ground. So, top roping it was. Never the less, a worthy route it is!
Also unfortunate with me and this route was that we somehow ended up with the extra short static line from the Bluff View House... Hmmmm, I had to begin the route about 3 bolts above the bottom anchors. So, if you stay at the Bluff view house, beware of the route that looks a little shorter than the rest, it IS!
