4 out of 5 stars second pitch is classic

great climb mostly short pitches. Makes sense to run 2nd and 3rd as one pitch. The slab up to is.... slab. Soft for the grade.

5 out of 5 stars great 5.10 multipitch

one of my favorite short multis, especially the first 3 pitches, the direct slab finish is a lot harder, 10d

5 out of 5 stars Great

I led pitches 2, and 4. I did the 10d slab variation for pitch 4. I did fall at the crux so technically I didn't onsight the route, but since this is just a variation, I still listed it as an onsight. WHatever! ;)
