3 pitches. First is 5.6 with lots of fixed pins. Next 2 are easier, in the 5.5 down to 5.3 range and require gear. A fun route, good belay ledges, and excellent view.

3 out of 5 stars Lots of bolts and pins, practically a sport climb.

Good climb to take beginners on, never felt like 5.6, probably lower grade than that. I use a small TCU and a large nut on the first pitch, after that I didn't touch my rack. TCU was close to ground and mostly to keep the rope running straight, the nut placement looked popular because the crack was well cleaned. You could climb this with just draws. Second and third pitches can be run together. I didn't clip anything on the third pitch, I barely used my hands. Nice big ledge at the top for lunch, and nice views.

The belay ledge before pitch 3 needs a bbq. I'll be hauling one there this summer for sure.
