5 out of 5 stars Great first multi-pitch climb

Awesome climbing and scenery. Can't wait to get back out there and try some of the other routes.

5 out of 5 stars Upper Refuse

I started this route on Black lung and when I got to the top of the third pitch of this route I was thinking for sure that it had to be more then a 5.5. I would still attest to it being more of a 5.7 with the way that the corner is faced and the ramp is smoothed from many feet on it. Over all great route though and all kinds of fun. Would happily do it again and again and again!

2 out of 5 stars Funish

Gets good once you get above the pitons at the "1st belay station". Not sure why you'd stop there when you can run the whole route out on one rope or belay from the ledge with the tree. The ramp was pretty unimpressive on the whole.
