4 out of 5 stars - - -

use cam to anchor belayer or else a lead fall will drag them into he air off the ledge. (or fall on purpose if that sort of thing is fun)

5 out of 5 stars Spectacular

Start halfway out of the pit just off the trail. The first bolt is about 15 feet up. Great climbing the whole way.

5 out of 5 stars holy cats, this one is amazing!

I almost packed it in, but I was sweet-talked into doing one more climb. I wound up cleaning the route on TR, and I'm super glad I did. The view and exposure is amazing! Don't mind the poo, and wash your hands before you eat your snacks. :)

5 out of 5 stars Cool

Starts with a slight traverse then zig zags up the face on jugs to the chains.
