4 out of 5 stars good...but not the best!

Yea herm, it WAS good, but I can name some others that take the cake...Bony Fingers, Aplomb, anything on Cardinal Pinnacle...

Very sustained climbing, stout cruxes and good exposure. Also some crunchy flakey holds and TONS of shitty lichen.

This is probably the best 3 pitch 5.10 on the Eastside; thin cracks, multiple roofs, following a sustained thin crack up the crest of an exposed arete. Other new routes in the area.

Probably the best three pitch 5.10 crack on the eastside. Kind of serious, each pitch took us a full day of effort, with cleaning and redpointing. Very sustained, cruxes on every pitch. A must do for local honemasters.
