4 out of 5 stars Fun route

gets easier as you work higher, nice ledge to rest on before the last few bolts, great holds near the end.

3 out of 5 stars Deception Day

There is a really long run out section in the middle of 4th class scrambling.

Move left and climb above the anchors to clip if you're short.

5 out of 5 stars Exceptional Route!

Good holds - hands/feet if you take time to look for them. I think the crux would be after the first clip. Look for a small flake on left, pull/lean right on it to reach the big ledge on right side. Rest of the climb is straight-forward. There are 3 good ledge rest on this climb, so you won't feel too pumped out.

Climb this route when the sun is rising or setting. It is absolutely beautiful when you reach the very top and look behind you.

NOTE: Some of the rocks on this wall are chossy, so wear a helmet if you are belaying.

First try - felt like 5.9
Second try - felt like 5.8
