5 out of 5 stars Super fun and easy

The approach is long for Potrero standards. My partner got the beat on it but it is not the nicest path ( I twisted my ankle on the walk down). You can link any of the two pitches with a 70m rope; however, on the third pitch (5.9) you better skip some bolts or unclip them on the traverse, otherwise you will have a lot of rope drag going to the 4th pitch. Every pitch is well protected and it is easy 5.10 climb with nice rest spots. At the summit you can sit on top of this knife edge looking ridge, very cool.

4 out of 5 stars soft as usual

Followed Cody T. We got on 3 Stone Place by accident at first and traversed over at the top of pitch 1 anchors...so I guess this was 11c for us. This one is a cruiser. Some large x'd out blocks near the top which I didn't touch. Crux pitch involved some interesting moves over a large bulge. I took a whipper there because all the rope was out--fell about 20 feet as a second. We linked pitches 2+3, 4+5, 6+7. Cody uprooted a medium cactus, which hit him on the way by, while retrieving the quicklink we bailed off of 3 stone place with. Soft grades as per potrero usual. We approached around the right side of the large spire in front of the wall, ascended the ridge, and then crossed over the scree and down to the base of the climb. 7 hours from the pagoda and back--this includes losing about 45 minutes on the adjacent climb.
