4 out of 5 stars Awesome

Great exposure, great climb. Well protected and feels more exposed than it actually is. Very fun rap from the top.

5 out of 5 stars The Tombstone

Awesome climb. No hands for the traverse, and your looking at a long fall if you fall between the fourth bolt and the anchors (50-60 feet).
