3 out of 5 stars Decent start for the day

Top roped it, not a bad route to start the day since it isn't far in.The very top isn't the greatest with the holds being iffy and muddy.

4 out of 5 stars good climb

my first climb at pictured, and my buddy's first time ever climbing. top of chimney is indeed dirty inside the crack, but just on the very left side of the crack at the slight overhang, few holds but the ones that are there are ok. stopped near the top of the chimney where the holds were getting muddy.

3 out of 5 stars not-so cozy trad lead

I've top roped this one, and did a couple of mock trad leads on it before. Today, I led it and felt a bit foolish about halfway up as I began to contemplate the result of a fall. I was plugging in a #3 cam and noticed in the crack something that looked like a bear claw mark...gee...that must be where gear had pulled through before during a fall. Hmmm... well, at least there's a few good places for big hexes and that boosted the confidence a bit. Still, not a lead I think I'll repeat. Definitely will try it again on top rope and more mock leading, but thinking about how that soft limestone might not hold gear during a fall was gripping at times.

4 out of 5 stars Herding sheep

I have only climb this on top rope with the University of Iowa. But would be a nice easy trad climb.
