4 out of 5 stars crux comes

near the ground. Basically climb up 25 ft with no good pro. Set one good piece of pro and pull the crux. The gear is decent, but it is one small piece between you and the ground. a little heady in my book, but i got through ok. The rest of the climb is well protected and pleasant.

5 out of 5 stars Sustained

Wow. The crux t the bottom is definitely the hardest move. Slick feet and awkward positioning. Definitely sustained. Take breaks when they are available. There's a couple of tricky corners before the roof. We were behind a slow party of three so ended up with a belay half-way up the second pitch.

5 out of 5 stars Crack!

Best trad climb I have done. As the name says, it is a straight line right up the center of the wall! The first pitch is strenuous but the dikes let you take rests. It is the best pitch with a couple crux jam moves. The second pitch is definitely easier but has a mini roof to pull. Starting right under the main roof, the third pitch is super short. The roof is easy and just needs a little muscle to hoist yourself up and over on big jugs. Savor this climb… it is definitely a five star route!
