about ten pitches of steep limestone climbing. The first couple pitches are contrived and loose, but the quality quickly improves. There are airy positions on this route despite the grade. Popular on weekends.
Continuing up Ultra Brewers makes for a fun longer day.

Only took 2 hours to get to hut the night before, ACC says 3-5….hardly worth the hut except for the experience of it, cool little place. On the route 5.5 hours, got lost in the snow on the summit in regards to descent. That sucked. 5 mini raps down once we found it. The 5.6+ and the last pitch which was the best two of the day. Neither were very difficult. We did the route in 10 vs 13 pitches. Super weather.
It's a long bloody hike but a worthy route. We started block leading but I ended up leading each pitch as we were being efficient that way. It's a 13 pitch route but some pitches can be linked. Generally good quality rock after the first two pitches and great climbing with good partners.
