5 out of 5 stars -

great climb, tougher than it looks. someone once told me that every time you rap down into a poison oak bush, you can climb one letter grade higher.

3 out of 5 stars 50 - Second to save a bail out

Nico lead Pillow crack up to the middle, then decided to bail out using the Nailbox Crack belay. I did this one top roping.
I found it hard, a French guide did it after us, and the good way to do it is to keep your feet in friction on the face, and not to try to squeeze them in the crack (as I did...).
