Great 3 star 100' climb with a bit of a scary runout crux at the top. Very consistent to the last bolt (bail draw hanging there when we went:), then the volume cranks up a notch for last 20 feet right to the top. Approach involves a short class 4 scramble up along the base from Dacite Conspiracy. One doubled 60m rope will just make it down with stretch.

4 out of 5 stars Watch for Bees!!

What a great climb, but don't stay at the top for long. I was worried about one rope being long enough to reach the bottom, so I decided to belay from the top. This was a huge mistake - My climbing partner and I were attacked by a swarm of bees that apparently resided in a nearby cliff. At first just a couple bees came by, but as I was up there longer, they came in hordes. I must have been stung at least 30 times. Finally, after setting up the 2-rope rappel while trying to fend of the swarm, we made it down alive. The climb was VERY FUN, but don't hang out at the top.
