4 out of 5 stars fun

The first pitch is really fun 5.6 climbing. Fun climb for its grade.

3 out of 5 stars Nice first multipitch

2 pretty straight forward pitches. First pitch is half and half trad/sport the second is mostly sport except one or two placements if you want to be super safe. First pitch is definitely much more interesting with the only perfect chimney I have ever seen outside a gym.

Great first multipitch just for getting the mechanics of multipitch climbing down.
