With Ariel. I like this route quite a bit. A bit more technical then just hand jaming to get up that wide start. Both of the 5.9's here worth doing.

5 out of 5 stars Beautiful Route.

Awesome route. The finger crack made it all worth it. One of the best 5.9s i've climbed in the park so far. Great route to end the day on.

Fun route. Climbing the flake switches from chimneying to undercling. Cool step over to finger crack near the top
