3 out of 5 stars Good climb

Variety of moves, half way up finger crack with options for footholds, fun to climb anyhow.

5 out of 5 stars Onsight Fun!

Great climb but hardly felt like a crack at all with all the face moves and good rests. Takes gear really well and well worth doing if your in the area.

4 out of 5 stars Excellent

A good climb for testing your ability to find and utilize rest stances, with fun crack and face moves and good pro.
