Aqua Knobby  Sucess!

Decent route, 2.5/5, not worth doing a dozen times as a friend of mine has. Combine with Dike Route for a half days worth of climbing during stormy weather. Led most all of the pitches. I combined the crux route with the short 5.7 corner above which makes total sense. It is still run out despite someone on stating otherwise, from the top of the crack system until you reach the crack way out right towards the end of pitch 2. That being said, modern gear, off-sets particularly, surely make this a safer lead then back in the day. First and last pitches could be easily soloed by the competent leader, but I would never really consider soloing the middle. Does not seem near as well traveled as the Dike Route.

Great route  Sucess!

Really nice route, thought p2 was a pretty heady lead.

Thrilling Climb  Sucess!

Led the 5.6R first pitch (slicker than expected!) and the 5.8 3rd pitch, which was really fun and solid.

Chris Terry led the money pitch, and both of us found the 5.8R section to be much scarier than the 5.9 section. Surprisingly steep for a 'slabby' climb!

Pretty mellow 5.9  Sucess!

A fun climb and probably a good 5.9 for those breaking into the grade.

Knobby with no aqua  Sucess!

With Pavel and Kris. Wicked route, especially the money 2nd pitch. First "5.6 pitch" felt a bit harder. Crux pitch is steep and sustained; grabbed my attention!

Enjoyable climb  Sucess!

With Greg Smith. I remember enjoying this climb, especially the third pitch thin crack--a fun lead.
