Belay ledge has 2 fixed pitons and can easily be backed up with a #3 Cam. Rappelling off of the route is pretty straight forward. The rappell bolts are located on the other side of the small butress. 2x 50 m ropes will get you on the ground safely.

I love the view from the midpoint belay, it's amazing.

This is quite amazing. After climbing this and five finger discount at climber's cliffs, we went to that restaurant on the way to Loch Lomond and drank ice tea (dehydrated) and ate burgers. What a great memory.

I think it's gorgeous with great protection. We pre-placed a big hex off the second belay by standing on each other's shoulders. Hey, rather be an old climber then a good climber....he he.

Beautifull Location. Rock is pretty poor quality. Pretty dirty and loose. Big falls are not friendly and expect some cuts and bruises. Givver!
