This is the face to the right of "Toe Jam Express". Hard moves at the start lead to easier climbing.


None, TR.

This hasn't been a 5.7 for a while, there are a few holds missing at the start. My friends and I jokingly call this route 7-Eleven I don't think I would give the missing hold moves an 11 but they certainly are not anywhere near a 5.7... lol great climbing above the start.

The guidebook rating is pretty far off; many climbers (Noobs?) complained while I was there that they couldn't do it--and that they were "solid on 5.7." So...I did the route and confirmed that there were maybe a couple of 5.8+/5.9- moves at the start but the rest was certainly 5.7.

5.7 is a total sandbag for the start if you take it head on. There are some good crimps but they're THIN tip trashers and the rock is steep initially. 10a for the bottom, then 5.6-5.7 for the rest which is fun and straightforward. If this was a sport climb almost anywhere else it would be 10a. 5.7 is a little over the top sandbag, even for Josh.

I agree with Justin. The bottom foot holds have been greased up a bit. Its a pretty tough start for 5.7.
