5 out of 5 stars Surprising 2nd pitch

Fun 1st pitch takes lots of pro. Can climb to the left side or right side - the face takes plenty of pro. Second pitch was surprisingly steep; seemed steeper than 1st pitch. Rapped off of rappel rings at the top of The Burn (Ectasy Jr ledge). 60 m rope didn't reach ground until it was weighted during rappel - and just barely.

This climb was so good that I can only imagine how good Ecstasy is. It's exposed with great great the whole way.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Enjoyed this as my first lead at the grade. You can wander almost anywhere on it and find gear and a way to the top.
Beware of loose rock near the top. A hidden slot takes a #10 stopper just above the overhang/bulge at the belay ledge. Route tops out at the large ledge that is the top of P1 to Ecstasy Jr. On my most recent ascent I found the top portion a little looser and broken than I first remembered.
