3 out of 5 stars Lots to do here

Great place to spend the day and be able to get on a lot of different routes. Bring a good amount of webbing.

5 out of 5 stars Interesting Climb

This climb is a great lead for intermediate trad climbers. It's a pretty solid two/three inch crack all the way up. I had a hard time placing most of my gear. There are a ton of 5.1 moves but the placement of protection is very difficult and in one place runout. It was a great climb though, I liked it a lot! Placing an anchor up top was pretty simple too. Great climb but just be aware of problematic protection placements.
