Gear: cams at least up to BD #4. Itís a bit dirty and a bit intimidating, but it is incredibly bad ass. If you make it through the long, overhanging dihedrals and the roof crux, then you are too.

Taking pics and watching don send this after a couple days of work was as rewarding as climbing it. His face at the anchors will be burned in my memory forever as what climbing can be. Will try post pics for this climb, got some good ones.

The oodles of wolf spiders netting the dihedral between the OWs told me I was the first one back in 3 years. I thought getting into the 1st OW was difficult, well beyond the grade. If you stop at the set of stoppers at the top of the first dihedral you are cheating yourself out of a route.

This is a really good route, just send a friend to clear the spiders/webs before you climb it. Slightly sandy/chossy rock on the bottom cleans up after the roof.
