5 out of 5 stars Great climb

Really nice climb with a slightly insecure feeling start that makes it all the better. Combine first two pitches to ledge foregoing first station.

4 out of 5 stars Wird Size, nice climb

The first pitch crack was all ring locks for my skinny fingers. A bit akward compared to fingers but very fun.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

tough start then nice finger crack. Second pitch is a little short. You can combine pitch one and two if you are so inclined.
