4 out of 5 stars None

Started at base, to left of Edgar Rice Burros, then up a thin right leaning crack (partner says 10c). Eventually joined up with Dappled Mare, then Roan Way.

3 out of 5 stars Roan Way

With Frank N., a fun variation to Dappled. Gear's a little scarce off the belay but the rock quality is better than it looks.

Fun climbing - heads up on the thin hard to protect moves off the belay.
