Even though many folks skip the first pitches, I did do the whole route...if simply for the adventure of it all and to complete the route in whole. The first pitch is the second most challenging lead of the day (5.8). The third pitch is about as chossy as the first two but does offer a crack up a corner which leads to much better rock above. The fourth pitch is better rock, but not overly sustained at the grade (5.7). The fifth pitch is what this route is all about but you will find yourself asking if the approach, dirty and loose climbing and descent are all worth it. (I led this pitch and no, it did not make up for it) A true 60m pitch of 5.8-9 crack and stem climbing in a limestone corner. The last pitch is a clean and short pitch to finish the route to the goat’s plateau above. With Jason W.
