4 out of 5 stars Onsighted

Not too technical of a climb, but super pumpy. Its pretty much all forearms. My brother, who is just as good of a climber as me, but taller had some difficulty. The only bad thing about this climb is hooking up the anchor, because the bolts are in a sketchy place.

Beta, if anyone wants it: I started off chimney climbing until I could reach the flake, then grabbed with both hands and smeared. Hand over hand until I could jam my toes under the flake. Once at the top of that, there's a fat jug and some good toe holds to rest on. Then you can either traverse a short bar to your left (where you anchor most likely is) or you can be ballsy and head up to the very top on the right.

Strong moves at the bottom. Sharp edges. I thought it was fun.

2 out of 5 stars Seems safe now....

3 people including myself climbed this even though it was posted that it has shifted. Felt solid when we climbed it. Anchors for top rope.

3 out of 5 stars Strong climb

nice pumpy moves on sharp rock. Toe hooks came in handy to prevent the barn door. Another fun one to practice setting up natural anchors.
