5 out of 5 stars Great Route

Climbed in on a rest day, after doing Becky/Chounaird. Great route. Both the first and the second pitch felt about the same in grade to me.

Chuck and I were going to do stuff in the Rockies and then when he got here, we had this huge weather window, something we have lacked all summer, so invited Peter and hit the Bugs....what a wise choice, 3 incredible days of climbing via tremendous weather...super time.
