Road Conditions

after turning off of the Mazourkas Canyon Road, the road that passes through the aforementioned gate is quite steep in a couple of places. The crux of the road is just past the gate.

I found this route to be very easy. No harder than 5.3

Re: Route Rating

Were you there with Todd Gordon's party this past weekend?

This is what Todd wrote on Supertopo about the route: "Approach is 3.5 miles...all uphill.....first 1.5 on a steep mining road, 2.0 is crosscountry with up and down gullys and ravines, and boulder scrambling/hopping....approach time over 3 hours with over 3000' elevation gain. Climbing is 5.5 with 2 bolts, a small wire stopper, and the formation is about 80' high.....alot of strenous hiking for a wee climb with great panaramic views.....
There was a register gets climbed maybe 10 times a year......."

So the route is either 5.3,5.4 or 5.5, depending on who does the talking. In my book, it is about 5.5
