first 2 bolts are really cool and pretty bouldery, the rest of the route is not fun. if your up this way with a pad, boulder the first 2 bolts then drop off.

First half is harder than it looks. The second half is definitely fun.

First half is a fun bouldering section followed by OK section requiring good balance. Overall just do the first part with a crash pad and you will have more fun.

Just barely worth it.

fun boulder problem start. becomes a 5.9 after the 2nd bolt

my only advice to the point chasers is to be a solid 5.11 climber so you can send this greasy, chossed-up, ginormous spider haven first go or else you might have to do it again! so if my name ever shows up on the spray we will all know why! :-)

I'm glad that this only took 2.5 minutes out of my life. However, I still want that 2.5 back...

Don't be hating on this route, it has cleaned up quite a bit....and it was dry today-unlike most other climbs at this wall.

This is a one move wonder between the first and second bolt. The rest of the route is probably a 5.9. Near the top i threw a heel hook right into a two inch pool of tarish sludge in the large cave like cavity near the anchors. I suggest just going straight up to them ;)

I found the start to be wet on a dry day and broke a few holds off to. I don't think it changed the grade, but the route is worth skipping.

If you like munge this one's for you! How this is rated as the hardest one of the 3 on this wall is beyond me... I thought it was easiest and lowest quality of the 3... again not saying much :)

It wasn't wasn't boulder problem to the the ledge? Yeah.
