Part of a 10 route day with Zach. Great weather, no other climbers present all day at any location we climbed. Kind of a must do if already doing routes at this rock as it goes to the top in one easy pitch. They removed the top anchors, so rap Dog Day Afternoon, pull the rope and climb it, a good 5.10 sport route on the arete.

route isnt that bad... lol. Bouldery start, but the first 15 feet don't count! the lone bolt is on 5.4 ish terrain, so don't worry bout it.

This route pissed me off. It's not a 5.7. The start is at least an 8, then there's a traverse with some exposure, it's run-out between the traverse and the bolt in the middle of the face climb, and the face start is crimpy. The bolt anchor/rap station is on the back side, making top-roping dangerous. Top-belay recommended.

The rap off the back side is fun though.
