5 out of 5 stars Incredible Local Sport Multi Pitch

I can't believe this climb doesn't see more action. Great lines, whoever did the bolting is to be commended. It makes for a fun sport multi pitch adventure just 20 minutes out of town. No horrible runouts to bone breaking falls, all the clipping positions are fantastic, someone went to the trouble of putting in chains to make a mantle shelf a little less exposed and dangerous. Really wonderful place to practice multi pitch technique and get some very fun climbing in as well. Beautiful view, great rock, excellent sense of exposure. I'm baffled as to why this isn't a Victoria classic.

Had a bit of an adventure on the 10b, pulling the block move was a bit burly. Had a little bit of trouble finding the start of the 4th pitch but the topo provided is quite accurate.
We took our time and round trip from truck to summit and down the trail back to truck was about 7 hours. Could be done much more quickly by an experienced team.

Whoever bolted this route, my hat is off to you, really fantastic work, thank you.

5 out of 5 stars Easy little runout finish

(First Pitch Only)
An interesting finishing sequence as the bolt before the hangers can not be seen until one has committed to a rather airy move. The sequence is extraordinarily easy, but a great gut check for burgeoning leaders.

5 out of 5 stars Sporty Limestone

A panopoly of holds. A myriad of solutions. Deceptive lines and excellent climbing.
