5 out of 5 stars Nice option for 2 pitches of 5.8

The first two pitches are easy and well bolted 5.8s, no run-outs, low first bolt and nice belay ledge. Worth doing as a "starter 2-pitch climb" for lower grade climbers. Be sure you get exactly on the middle marker for a 60m rope to rap the 2nd pitch.

5 out of 5 stars Sustained sustained sustained

This climb is great, but, it's sustained. The first two pitches are 8's and can be easily linked. The first half of the 3rd pitch is reasonable, but, then the business starts and doesn't really let up until the top. You need a 70 meter to do the 3rd pitch. I seconded the 3rd pitch.
