|Very fun climb. The small amount of vegetation adds to the ambiance. The first half of the climb definitely keeps your interest.|

|This is actually named Slip Slidin' Away. First ascent in spring 1981 by myself with Larry Schubarth seconding, thought it was hard 5.9. Very smooth and liquid movements with little brass RPs for protection.|

|This climb is excellent! It protects fine with a couple small HBs and TCUs.|

I rated the pro as PG-13 only because the first placements are a little fussy and if you blow the moves with sketchy gear you will likely deck. There are 2 small placements to be had from good stances, but make sure they are solid, as the next move is no gimmie and the next placement is about another body length above. Think I used a #2 or #3 slider nut that was bomber after not getting a good placement for an Alien.
Fun climb, and the gear gets better the higher you go.
