4 out of 5 stars Led

The first pitch is the technical part with some awkward moves up th flowstone corner. The second pitch traverses about 25ft into a corner and then 20ft across the other wall, then a great finish up an easy but exposed arete. The second has fun as the rope swings across the big corner, like the golden gate bridge.
