5 out of 5 stars A slice of the creek.

This route reminds me of the creek although it would definately go in two pitches there. Sadly split up the glory with a friend and i did the 1st and 3rd. he was worried about the third which turned out to be pretty relaxed for what it looks like from the ground. Stellar rock and pretty solid climbing the whole way.

5 out of 5 stars classique!

red point lead the first pitch- it's all there and super fun. Followed clean-the second pitch- hard but much easier tha I remembered from a few years ago when I had to aid thru the crux. 3rd pitch I also followed- took a good whipper on the traverse- I was pretty pumped and found it harder than I expected. reasonable gear the whole way!

Mark lead the first pitch and I lead pitches 2 and 3. Both roofs are awesome. What a climb!
