4 out of 5 stars Three of us

Led the 2nd pitch, cleaned the 3rd. 3rd pitch rappel is almost exactly 30m -- tails of a 60m rope were hanging at the anchor.

One of the longest routes in the local (Ottawa) area. I think the rappel distance was about 80m, so the route would have been even longer due to wander.

I think the pitches are around: 5.4, 5.4, 5.0. 2nd and 3rd pitches quite easy to protect, first pitch a bit trickier.
