5 out of 5 stars fun

A fun crack, easily protected with passive gear if you're willing to scrape some lichen out of the way with your nut tool.

3 out of 5 stars Never underestimate the power of a 5.6 squamish crack!

Felt more like 5.7 or 5.8! Great warm-up climb if your in the area and want to get loosened up. Super fun crack and steeper than it appears.

3 out of 5 stars Use the crack

Lots of holds, a couple of mantles, but I didn't like the flaring cracks for my cams. I avoided the crack for a while but then shoved my feet/hands into it (much easier). I (6"1 ft) didn't like it that much but my climbing partner (5"8 ft) loved it. I much preferred the 5.8 Magical Child next to it which I thought was about the same difficulty (but without the ledges for rests). Needed small and large gear.

4 out of 5 stars Fun crack

Kind of scary bit past the half way point mantle ledges, but bomber gear the whole way.
