βeta: the gear on this is poor. small wire near the start and then a cam placement just before the top out. i think vs 4b would be a better grade. the climbing isn't great. do kelly's eye instead.

Muttly 31 May, 2014 Lead O/S Felt trepidatious before getting on it just from looking. Maybe should have listened to those feelings. I placed the gear in the first break, I considered gear off to the right in Bent Crack and should have placed some realistically. I then teatered and wobbled up the slab scared. Guidebook says VS 4b, I thought more like HVS 4c and not a good route at that.

Reaver2k 10 Feb, 2009 Lead O/S Pretty scary! Put some gear in the first decent break (small cams) then stood up (easier than it looks) to reach the holds just below the overlap. Started getting scared and placed some gear slightly further right, probably in October crack really. Then mvoed back left and up. Glad I put the gear in as the rest is pretty poor above 4b moves on some slopers. Nice climb though, maybe next time I will run it out although the gear didn't really feel like a side runner or anything.

Hard at the grade, the rock was very grippy though and I pulled up ok, guess it was the lack of gear I found unnerving. Tough at VS 4c.
