A very popular introduction to the climbing in this area. The finish provides the crux.

Although the route was graded a 4 I thought the move between bolts 3 and 4 was quite committing for its grade.

Yes, they should have chipped some more holds in it. Really, one wasn't enough.

Removed a LARGE chunk of rock off this one yesturday. Left some earth behind which should clean soon with all this rain we've been having.

A HARD 4, should be a 4+, last moves are the hardest and are very committing.
Gary Wilson - 02/Apr/02

I think this route is a hard 4 but not quite 4+. The last moves to the lower off are rather thought provoking.

Strange one, the crux is harder than anything on "It's my Life" -5- which is a nice route by the way!

This bulges at the top leaving you feeling a little exposed doesn't it? Well done, fckit! might be more appropriate name.

I regularly lead higher than this, but I found the top one of the most awfully exposed moves I've made. Do Ixtlan next door is a five, and tough at the top, but not as daunting. I suspect a bit of polish has made the last moves, on rounded, smooth rock, even less solide.

The top move is no harder than 4. There is a hold up high to the left, use this and its easy.

Found the last section very hard. Managed to get level with the lower off but fell off before I could clip in. I must have missed a hand or foothold at this point.

Use the holds on the right and trust your feet and it's fine. possibly is a 5...
Wilbur - 24/Oct/06

Really lovely climbing all the way up to the crux, but man, I felt exposed pushing up over the last bolt and not having much for my hands. Maybe I missed something obvious? Big obvious ledge and a little flake a little above it and that was about it.

Re-did this with help and it wasn't that hard the second time. Still a bit gutsy though. I used my right hand in the slot above the ledge, leaned out left and clipped from that position - which is quite intense on your right arm. You could use the slot, bring the right leg up and mantle the ledge and once there, there are super grips on the break.

Loose belay bolts replaced.
