5 out of 5 stars Awesome Multipitch! Super fun

This face is in the sun early in the day and the rock gets HOT! We were on the first pitch at 6:30 am and got to the 7th pitch before the sun started to come around. Suggest going early to avoid frying in the sun.

Super fun routes, bolted in great places. Some loose rock but mostly solid. Belay areas are good. Make sure to bring walkie-talkies as you can't hear each other well.

Top of the 8th pitch is a great shady spot, but the last scramble to the top is awful. Loose rock, dirt, sharp trees. Highly suggest staying tied in and belaying from the top. No clear path as to which direction to go - we guessed and we're super exhausted and frustrated by the end. Not an easy scramble!!!

4 out of 5 stars ^^

Ascent with robo, easy to loose the trail down when it's snowy. Great views, easy first multi pitch for many.
