The straight up finish is a little bit harder and more interesting. There are also a couple of variations on the start and the rest of the route.

The beginning is a little challenging, but not outside the grade. If you are searching for desperate, look elsewhere. Even if above your ability, the well-bolted face lends a warm fuzzy feeling. A great route.

fun climb, more technical than pumpy, which is just my style!! i actully got a little Elvis Leg going to the anchors on marginal holds, but i wasnt worried, if i didnt make it my climbing partner / wife would have finished it easily, she always kicks my aress. very fun, recomended!!

Fun climb all the way up. The top is a little thinner then the rest but nothing that this grade wouldn't suggest. Look a little right for an easier variation to the start.

Fun, Fun, Fun. I started to the right of the first bolt and found the grade to be dead on. Rumour has it that if you start directly under the first bolt it's actually a 10d.

pretty easy route. start was hard, especially because it was so wet from the rain. Normally, it wouldn't be to hard. fun tho!

Easier than Bethel. Finish was tough. Ended up doing an arm jam in the huge horizontal and clipped from a low stance.

i did the start to the right but couldn't pull off the finish. did it on TR and went way right for the finish. not sure if that's the best option if i was leading, though.

I led this and found it pumpy. I had a problem with the finish, so I down climbed to prevent a fall. Just pumped me out more - should have just kept on climbing up. Finished it after resting at the last bolt.

First bolt was moved higher to reduce risk of decking when climber falls while attempting to clip second bolt.
