Climb to the very left end of the Pillow Wall. Lots of dirt and choss at the bottom, moves to a left facing corner system with lots of feet, good hands. Toula's book calls it 5.10; it's easier than that.

3 out of 5 stars I think the 5.10

is the shotty looking face climbing if you start from the ground. I can't imagine anyone doing that section but it looks 10ish. Routine crack climbing in a corner makes for a nice warmup.

2 out of 5 stars Easy for the Forks

Bomber jams, holds everywhere. You don't see too many of these at the Forks. A bit dirty in places.

3 out of 5 stars Ow!

my foot hurts! Good thing this climb didn't need much in the way of foot jamming cuz I'm not sure I could have done it. Still, a good climb...great hand jams, fun climbing.
