4 out of 5 stars Warm up

on this before trying to tackle one of the >5.10 pitches on the routes it leads to. The crux is towards the bottom and there are a few sections where it is best to abandon the flake to face climb just to the right. Either stop at the bolts to toprope a bolted 12b? or continue on to the classics of the West bulge.
