I've been climbing in the gorge for three years now. Up until recently, I've only cleaned the climbs (5.6-5.8). Recently, I climbed this as my first lead. It rocked! Perhaps now I'll have the nerve to lead other climbs? Maybe. It was a fun climb and I would certainly recommend it, especially as a wake-up climb in the morning. Peace out. -Gondrewzo

It looks like there has been several holds breaking off on this climb. It made me a little nervous, but it's still a great climb, and I'm sure that after a few ascents the climb will stabilize.

Climbed this at night with a lamp. I believe the guidebook 4ed says 4 bolts-- it's actually 5 or 6. Looks like the chains have been moved up.

My 10 year old son lead this Saturday. Fun first lead!
