Entertaining route with a good crux.


From the Power Tool ledge, look up on the face to the right for some chains...that's the top. Now go back towards the Matterhorn Boulder and work your way down around the south side of the crag to the start (a ledge with a dead tree).

Worth doing while your there. But no where near 10b. More like mid to hard 5.9. Fun moves at the top.

Fun little route. Agree with Jimbo that it's not 5.10. More like 5.9.

I like the idea that it's a 9. I think that doubles the number of single-digit routes I've put up in the last 15 years.
