A good route with lots of varity in the climbing, a double rack helps for the belays. The chimney crux pitch is not harder than a normal 5.8+, just climb it like a chimney. The last pitch has a litle sting in the tail with very litle pro for the upper 2/3's of the pitch.

4 out of 5 stars good route

Turns into a very fine route with the Direct start, a good older route that hasnt been bolted into submission
