5 out of 5 stars Fantastic

Did the 5.9 direct variant on the fourth pitch. Great rock, awesome exposure, beautiful setting. When approaching, watch out for rockfall coming out of the gullies above the talus slope

This line is fun in a way only quartzite can be (so long as you're not particularly short). It's such bomber rock to place gear. The third pitch is beautiful vert dihedral and juggy roof sequences. The last pitch has a chimney with a false top out before turning around and finishing the line to top out again. Next time though I'm doing the 5.4 line around the left corner for the first pitch instead of the flaky, chossy direct line to the right. WARNING: if you rap with double ropes, the knot is likely to get caught just below the station at the top. Next time I'm going to stop at the third station and pull and shake the knot until it's clear. With 2 60m ropes there will still be enough rope to reach the 2nd station.
