4 out of 5 stars Looks a lot

more difficult from the ground than it is. The crux is well defined and the climbing is fun. 2nd pitch ups the exposure quite a bit.

4 out of 5 stars Excellent climbing

just watch out for a few loose blocks near the bottom. I ended up jamming it and it was casual if not slightly cupped hands.

5 out of 5 stars Great romp up good rock

Like everyone else has said pick your descent route wisely and don't try to shortcut it. First half of the climb went unroped, then simuled everything but the last pitch. Great views!

4 out of 5 stars Fun route

that is probably even better than Holdless Horror at a similar grade and climbing style. Bring a lunch to the top and have fun.

4 out of 5 stars Did the Errett by Bit

linkup which was a great couple of pitches. Even though this linkup is not considered R rated the bolt spacing is typical for Tuolumne so don't fall.

5 out of 5 stars Oh my god

what a great route. I was pumped out of my mind after about the first 20 feet and it just kept going. I didn't think I was going to be able to pull the 5.6 moves to the anchors my forearms were so burnt. I used 3 3's and 3 2's with about a 25 foot runout in the easier jams if that helps anyone.

4 out of 5 stars Good fun

and a tough entrance crux. Definitely worth the walk up there.

4 out of 5 stars An underused route

that is really good. Aside from being a tad dirty this route is an excellent crack climbing adventure. Note that you can rap twice to the ground with a 70 using the lower set of slings on the first rap, tie knots in the rope just in case.

5 out of 5 stars I have to echo

what others have said as this is a hidden gem. 10a finger crack crux, 10a lieback crux, and a great stretch of hero handjams. Make sure your rope touches on the rappel.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

but baking in the sun. Bring stoppers and a slab mindset.
