5 out of 5 stars Superb

Did the first pitch easily, transversed right to a trad belay halfway up pitch 2... easier to belay your leader from there when he goes into an obvious crack left of the belay... the crack is one of the most obvious features in the wall... its 5.7 and avoids the 5.8+ parts with 2 bolts.

Rain, strong winds and cold temperature made the route extra fun!

4 out of 5 stars Super de belle montagne !!

Ma première expérience de trad !! c'étais malade !!
On est allé en mai, et il fesait encore vraiment trop froid. Entre juin et aout/septembre serait surment beaucoup mieux pour la grimpe.

4 out of 5 stars great rock/great route!

new anchors at each belay for this classic route. as a second pitch, give the line straight up (5.8) a shot. its got 2 bolts at the cruxy section that you will be thankful for! the third pitch is a snitch but topping out is fun nonetheless. highly recommended route!
