One of Portland's finest routes. Some thin pocket moves and a great finish all on immaculate flowstone.

I found the top moves harder than the crux. They're really quite long-reachy and pumpy, as opposed the two-move fingery crux.

I thought the crux was the low fingery two-move crux. The reaches were quite long at the top but the holds were so good, I did not find them pumpy.

The crux is certainly fingery and the top half of the route is probably 6a+.

The top is easy really. It should be in the bag if you reach the mid height ledge.

Simply a joy. Classic 6c+

A great climb somewhat defiled by the sad attempt to chip out an eliminate line to the right.

Wonderful route. The crux is much harder than the rest of the route, but I think the grade is OK.

Simply a classic route, with an amazing finish, that is a pleasure to do after the fingery start.
Glen - 12/Apr/05

Very good route. One stiff pull low down and a ramble to the top. Good first 6c+ i reckon.

Awesome route, 'specially the top section. Great finishing jugs too.

The bottom section is quite hard if you don't spy the sidepull flake out left, like me!
