5 out of 5 stars Awesome, awesome, awesome

Super fun climb with great exposure and a spectacular view top to bottom. Wasn't exactly psyched about the 150ft vertical ascent hike at the top to get to the brutal descent trail. Make sure you save water for the descent. Ended up drinking from a stream. Can't say enough good things about this climb.

5 out of 5 stars Great Climbing

Great climbing overall with wicked exposure! Watch for loose rock.
Left crack variation on P1 somewhat sketchy and commiting.

5 out of 5 stars Whitney Gilman

Sweet climbing with great weather and no other climbing parties on a Thursday. Seconded WG about 5 years ago. Finally led it. Did the 5.8 variation for pitch 2 unintentionally.

5 out of 5 stars brought bivy gear along, but got there too late!

I got lost on the drive down, hiked up in the night, we wanted to sleep on the climb...

Lots of loose rock, if you're below another party, stop bitching and don't stay right under them, they're trying to do their best not to drop pebbles...

4 out of 5 stars First serious trad climb

What a way to start a climbing career. Beware of getting your knee stuck in the four inch crack when jamming.

5 out of 5 stars The best 5.7 I've done

Loved this one, the exposure was amazing. Hooked, but want to lead the pipe pitch next time.

5 out of 5 stars Fun

The weather cooperated and the views were spectacular. Not as much loose rock as I expected. Can't wait to go back and lead it.
