3 out of 5 stars Convenient

First route on the trail from the south. Great top route set up with two hangers on a steady footed ledge. Short crack with sparse feet.

4 out of 5 stars Tuff 5.8

I'm not in the best of climbing shape right now, but that crack beat me up! That was a struggle for me, but really fun with the fist jams and what not. Was kinda thinking it was harder than a 5.8 until I watched my buddy climb up it with no problem... then it looked like a 5.8 again...
