5 out of 5 stars exposed

Followed this pitch and thought both the first sequence (a traverse without gear, PG13) was exposed, as were the final moves at the roof (G). The final roof sequence is very cool though.

5 out of 5 stars Superb climb

I've followed this climb many times and this is such a great, exposed climb. When I finally climbed it the "classic-5.7" way, I found it to have one of the scariest traverses. Exposed, standing on a thin ledge. The last pitch is the money pitch. Thin in a couple of areas, but it's all there... a true classic!

5 out of 5 stars Harder for the second

Good pro but you need to lean far and hard to get that micro cams out. Have courage for the final moves if you are leading.
