Beautiful rock. Well-bolted, clean and aesthetic. A great climb.

That photo was taken before this route was bolted. Not so clean or aesthetic back then. Note the loose rock and vegetation on the ledge. It's gone now. I didn't know if the route would be worth the effort, but it cleaned up nicely.

Nice route, same exact move for the first couple bolts, fun climb though

One of the best easy routes in the red.

this was incredibly fun climbing on great holds. even if this is way below your level, it's worth getting on.

Great easy route, with great feet and hands the all the way up.

Ya, it's a 5.7. Nice warm up or intro climb. Fun with giant holds.

Since when have 5.7s been overhanging. This thing is sandbagged. Try 5.8+. Can you say PUMPY?

I agree its a bit pumpy...but wasn't very inspiring to me....oh little route nonetheless!

My first true lead (with groundfall potential), loved the route, i need to get better at clipping, almost took a 15 footer at the anchors slack plus gumbyness, plus elvis leg, not the cleanest fall if I had blown my footing. I lika da glory, consequence made it definitely interesting.

Very pumpy route
MSMITH said on June 20th, 2008
I don't know if you guys know, but you CAN shake out on every jug rest to reduce the pump. And by every jug rest, I mean every hold on the damn route.

Nice show of angst, Morgan! I'd like to hear a little more whining next time, though.
Yasmeen said on June 21st, 2008
I like how bhuff04's comment about repetitive moves got posted twice. Did you plan that, Brandon?
MSMITH said on June 22nd, 2008
Ah, Damn, I'm working on it.... I mean, Leave me alone! You don't know my struggles :(

A great warm up route if you're climbing Touch of Grey next to it. The beginning is a bit sketchy for a 5.7 After that it's smooth sailing but, being close to the ground, it's a bit dangerous for someone just wanting an easy 5.7
cjdrover said on November 10th, 2008
I'd put the starting move at 5.8 or 5.8+ (comparable difficult to Crescendo at Practice Wall). Rest of it easy and fun with good rests. Excellent warm-up.

My third lead climb ever. Great fun! A little scary (for me) climbing to the first bolt.
Jumprope said on August 23rd, 2011
Very fun route! First move is the hardest. Good holds. Go high with your feet the hand holds will be there
