Rebolted by TK 3/05. Very cool route - worth doing for sure.

Make a tough final move then clip the anchors - after about 20 more feet of easy runout climbing. Good stuff.

has anyone else been on this recently and thought it was very difficult for the grade? I talked to some people who got on it a few years ago and said it was reasonable for the grade but I couldn't figure out the moves at all. I'm wondering if some crucial holds have broken off in the last couple years.
Wes said on May 24th, 2008
Actually, it is now a little bit easier, esp. hanging the draws. When we replaced the bolts, we moved one very slightly down and to the right, which made it easier for shorter people to hang/clip. Just very techy climbing for a couple bolts in the middle, otherwise it is pretty mellow climbing.

that last move is a tough one... sent me on a good 25' whipper

I finally sent it today after taking a lot of time working out the moves. pretty tricky to find the holds and probably a lot harder to do in moist conditions.

whew...thinking I'd do it first go, second go, third go, fourth my tips are cursing me.
