28m. A Portland gem. Start at a boulder on the path. Climb the lower wall to below a long crack-line. Move up the crack until a line leads out left onto the wall and small ledge. Climb the slabby wall above the ledge until a tricky mantel move gains the lower-off. © ROCKFAX

worthwhile, semi-decent route.
rustaldo - Lead O/S - 19/Jul/12 with Jordon Fleming

A wandering line with only a couple of good moves. Not really a mantel at the top if you spend some time looking around for holds. A bit over rated

A wandering and massively overrated route.

Amazing route - my first 6b+ and loved it. Fab technical slab, followed by an interesting blank wall jut before the belay. Superb sunny February day too

Mantel at the top not mandatory if you've got a reasonable wingspan. Much better than the strong visual line of Return to Roissy.

Finished on final (double) bolts thinking it was the belay. Fancied the tick since the day out was otherwise terrible but a cheat to do so. I'll be back to finish it properly. Good route but first half is well easy.

Really nice climb, perhaps a little economically bolted in the lower section. Quite hard to read

it all came apart at that tricky move just after the last bolt - went up with the wrong hand, couldn't reverse it and got pumped silly -- argh!
