Gabe Oliver 11 Jan Lead dog Had two laps, one putting the draws on and then went for it. Got to the crux but no endurance on those little crimps. Super good route and the rock is much better than it looks from below. Clips are fine.

JonesE 4 May, 2018 TR dog Had a go at redpointing this route as it suits my style. The start is pretty steady to the ledge. The crux sequence of moves is pretty hard, especially if you can only fit your little finger in the undercling. Can do all the moves in a oner through the crux and the headwall to the last couple of crimps but it was boiling and my skin was trashed from the sharp holds and I lacked the strength endurance. Awesome route - one to come back to for sure.

climberchristy 14 Feb, 2016 Lead RP Got it on 1st RP. Very close on the onsight attempt - came off just reaching for the better hold above crux. Grr! Then started to try out a different sequence but barely started working it when the heavens opened and got rained off! Waited til sun came out then led clean 1st go. Great route. Really nice climbing with great rest half way. Couple of very awkward clips though - not best bolt positioning.
