3 out of 5 stars not sure what all the rage is...

thought it was a decent climb, but not a 5 star. Long climb to get the morning cobwebs out.

5 out of 5 stars Saw a whipper!

Loved this climb - good fun. While waiting to get on this climb a woman in the party climbing it took about a 30 foot (clean) whipper. She fell trying to clip a bolt near the top. My wife hung the draws and got a good on-sight.
