Not your typical RRG route, definitely worth doing except for the very eroded start (maybe if it becomes popular a staircase or some reinforcement should be added to protect the tree).

4 stars except for the manky start.

Incredible route. Made me think, made me smear, and made me a little nervous. Thanks Don, you know how to pick them!!!

Cool route ! had to go off route about half way ran out of holds. again need to do some tail work around the tree.

There are great holds spaced perfectly all the way up this thing. If you end up stemming out to the right you just rob yourself of the fun you could have had. Great line.

Really fun climbing! My friend who never likes any routes came off this and said "If I climbed routes like this every day, I'd be a much better climber." High praise for a great route.

Years ago, I saw this guy have a really bad time on this route. He started cruxing out on the face, bailed to the crack thinking it'd save him, and for some reason climbed well past his next bolt (guessing that since he was in the crack, well right of the bolts, he didn't stop to think where it was). He couldn't down-climb (I mean, he could have, but he wasn't psyched) so he just stayed in the crack, stuck, for like half-an-hour, freaking out the whole time. As my group left, he was still in the crack. Maybe he's still there, sweating, grunting, and wondering why he ever started rock climbing.
