Rating: 5 - Really sweet route altogether in 8 pitches. Started at 5:30am, topped out at 9:20am and finished rapping all in the shade by 10:30. Rapped the route with a single 70m, but would not recommend it. (If you do, carefully watch the rope on raps reaching base of the 10a Thin hands pitch, and also the next one to Sunset ledge: sketchy). Not a single soul on this route on a beautiful Tuesday morning. Levi led 1,3,6, I lead 2,4,5,7-8
A must do.

Rating: 2 - 4 experienced climbers each took this on, twice. Consensus was more like 5.9 - 5.10a, at least with current conditions (dirt/moss/lichen). Kind of awkward; wouldn't take "5.8" climbers down this one, unless they're prepared to rap all the way to the forest floor.

This problem had a ton of scorpions under the brush as I cleared the top for the first time. Scattered everywhere. That is my crash pad and makeshift fence to keep the pad and person from flopping down the hill.
Sorry but Jacob did not get this one. We cleaned this place out well.

Rating: 4 - heady move up past the first bolt to gain the clipping stance for the second. Crux moves are well above your last piece and it's much easier for someone over 6' tall to make that long move out to the left. All in all, it's a great route with excellent rock and good exposure, sure to keep the blood pumping and mind focused!
