3 out of 5 stars hard to get off the ground

Then it's ok. Nothing special. It's a means to get to the second pitches off the ledge. P2 is a good climb.

2 out of 5 stars It helps to be tall....

to get started. After that, it seems easy for a 5.8. My tall buddies had no problem reaching a key hold to get started. I had to do a little extra.

2 out of 5 stars Alpine Diversion

Linked both pitches with abundant gear and no issues. I agree with Dana Bartlett about this being a gimme 5.8 even though the initial moves are tricky.
