Once the location of a controversial large A-Frame ladder nailed to a large wooden pallet this fairly good line now sports the more common pile of cheater stones at the base to assist with reaching the high starting holds. If you want to turn this good line into not so good then climb past the anchors to the second set.

Stellar line. Once you actually get your feet in the wall it's quite easy. Can't imagine that this is harder than many 9s such as creature feature, sunshine, or moonbeam. However, might be some of the best climbing at whichever grade it settles at.

There is an extension to this line. Called "Raise Hell" and probably adds one letter grade to whatever Princess goes at. About 4 more bolts worth of climbing with a couple moves to gain a huge ledge and then 5.7 climbing above it. Unless you are desperate for the points or to climb every 10 in the Red, I would not recommend doing it.

One more comment. It is now 6 bolts. Added one between 2 and 3 and one before the chains to keep you from hitting your belayer down low or the rope from getting hung up, up high.

I personally thought the extension was fun and definitely worth it, especially once it cleans up. The worst part was pulling the bulge while every other hold blew off. Next time I'll there I'll bring a brush and try to clean it up a bit.

Cool plates! Definitely can teach people all about z-clipping on this one. But close bolts were very good for a newish hesitant leader in our group.

It used to be 4 bolts.. but I added two as I thought it might be popular with those breaking into the grade.. really a 5.9 with one move to get established.

This route has it all! Nerd gate to start, 25 feet of unremarkable climbing, and guaranteed to drop your rope in the mud when you pull it
