3 out of 5 stars Fun Enough.

Was looking for some casual fun. This qualifies, but... It seemed tougher than the route to the left. The previous climber mention solid, non-crumbly rock. But several sections of fresh-looking rock that show that flakes have broken away recently. And there's a large loose block along the arete near the top. (Thus my "PG13" rating. Please don't toss that thing down on your belayer.)

4 out of 5 stars fun, decent rock

Nice to be on some non crumbly rock, nice face, crux seemed like bottom. You have to traverse all the way left to open shuts, old anchor at what would be more natural ending partially pulled.
