Pleasing and precise climbing on great rock. Move up the wall to a small corner and make some long moves to an easing at a thin crack. Climb the thin crack to a ledge at the horizontal break from where one last move up gains the lower-off.

An ideal route for someone attempting their first 6a

It is a little bit reachy though so not perfect for kids/short.

Polished choss. Horrible.
Andrew McLellan - 24/Jun/02

I also thought it was reachy, probably only 5+ if you are over 6ft (I'm not)
Al - 24/Sep/02

BTW its not polished choss, quite nice climbing actually.
Al - 24/Sep/02

I agree wit Andy, a polished horror.
Eddy - 05/Nov/02

my first portland onsight 6a. lovely.

Did this again this weekend, got to admit it was very slippy, mostly due to chalked up holds I think, probably better in winter.
al evans - 26/Aug/03

slimy, reachy, average route
John Alcock - 26/Jul/04

high first clip, polished and reachy. NOT A GOOD WARM-UP
Wilbur - 02/Aug/04

Brilliant memorable moves. An excellent little route. Only a teensy bit polished.
Jus - 27/Mar/05

Great 6a climbing. The polish doesn't distract. Lovely reaches!
Henry - 29/Mar/05

Good solid rock...all the holds are there even for a shorty.
Morgan Woods - 03/May/05

Nice set of moves, I even managed to build in a fun but probably unecessary dyno. As to polish... erm, where?!!
cider nut - 08/May/06

At the start for feet..
Wilbur - 09/May/06

i take back my comments. When i wrote this i was actually referring to Inch perfect inchworm! - got my routes mixed up! . Still a bit of a tenuous move for 6a but very enjoyable climbing..
Wilbur - 07/Aug/06

A committing move to get to the first good holds, and lovely climbing from there on. Not polished and definitely worth 2 stars
