5 out of 5 stars Great!

I really enjoyed the upper stem/layback section... This crack will take whatever pro you can throw at it!

4 out of 5 stars Nice Crack!

Bit of a bouldery start makes way to easier climbing up until you get to the last 15 ft or so of crack. Here the crack gets much steeper and placing pro can be tricky to get a good visual on your placements but good solid crack climb, not too bad of a crux.

3 out of 5 stars fun climb with short 5.9 section

fun climb, scramble up the easy bottom part then a short section of 5.9. The upper crack can be seeping a bit at the lower end.
