This route is not worth the effort IMHO. Be AWARE that most of the climb in on loose blocks. Very low quality route that should be avoided unless you're into this sort of P.O.S.

I liked this climb. It was easy and fun. Did Abby Road right after, although I think it is just a little to the left.

I thought the route was great for a first trad lead. Low stress, easy climbing. Good route for getting acquainted with placing pro. It is chossy, though, in some places. Tread lightly through the upper bit of the pitch, especially.

Thought this was really good fun, and the rock isn't bad at all. Perhaps the comments above came from another similar climb? We climbed some anonymous horror around the corner thinking it was Penny Lane, about 5.4-5.5, but VERY loose and chossy. I can't find details of it in Handren's book or on here. Penny Lane itself was fun, and super clean in comparison.

There are some loose rocks, but no more so than other routes of comparable grade. Overall a good route. The fly's at the bottom of the route in the summer time are extreamely annoying.

Not a bad route if you free solo it. Use all the available jams to milk the full value.
