Actually, this route is pretty solid and found it very enjoyable. Can't say its completely sustained (as mention in the 'Bishop Area Rock Climbs' guidebook) but there is a distinct crux two thirds the way up the route and little bit beyond, before reaching the anchors. 3 out of 4 stars!

Oh, if you want scary.....try 'Pop' (.11a), the route just left of this route. Thin crimps up to the second bolt. Bad landing, if things go wrong!

I was disappointed with this climb. It has good moves, but on crumbly and grainy rock. Well protected climbing, though.

Definately chossy, but with enough good rock to keep it worthy of climbing. The first 2/3 of the climb is great (despite the choss) with some challenging, steep moves.

Maybe this has improved. Just did it today. Except for one or two holds early on, this was pretty clean, solid, and a hell of a lot of fun. Clipping stances are excellent. Challenging but there are some breaks along the way. Go do it!

Didn't find much choss on it. Thought it was a great route, relatively sustained (but you can find rests often.)
