Had it clean on TR until I got hung up in a dead branch at the top out. Great route!

I origionally wanted to name this line "and now for something completely different" as it has a little of everything. Sadly, I fell on the FA attempt and Jerry Bagged it first.

I took a nice 10 footer off the finish today. Had my hand in the summit dirt, clawing for the bush and peeled. Pulled a #3 and a #4 TCU out on the way down. Beware chossy, mossy rock at the finish. Otherwise the gear and the climbing are stellar. The first crux protects very well.

Actually Bill Strachan bagged the FFA, not me.

when I was cleaning gear on rappel after an attempt, sharp iron edges close to the top of the cliff sliced the rope to the core!!!

Great route. Solid. Someone needs to plant a solid-er tree up top for rapping.

I dunno about solid. You just crank harder than mortals. I watched Wicked tribe whip and rip out gear on the way down. Worst trad fall I ever witnessed. Glad it wasn't me.
