5 out of 5 stars High on the List

Of my favorite Colorado climbs. The second and third pitches are extremely good. The last pitches are pretty good as well. Three first its a little mediocre until you get into it.

WOW! Great climb. Tough moves and a sustained 5.8 ptich. The last pitch goes at 5.6 and has great exposure. We did the climb in 3 pitches; pitch 1, pitch 2&3, pitch 4&5. Pitch 4 is the 5.8 and pitch 5 is 5.6. And its 5.6 for the whole thing. Combined, pitch 4&5 are 190' of hard ass climbing.

Incredible climb. Took the arete on the last pitch. Not as hard as the regular, but talk about HUGE exposure. Recomend this var.

Lots of loose rock on the route. Be very careful on the last pitch. There's a lot of big blocks and flakes that are not solid. Make sure that you are pulling down, not out whenever possible up there. The loose flakes and blocks are chalked up so use caution. P2 is a blast and the final pitch is a fun lead for trad newbies. Endless options for pro.
