4 out of 5 stars Fun

You can cheat the run out to first bolt by clipping it via traverse from the ledge. Fun face climbing.

2 out of 5 stars Runout

50' to first bolt, including 5.7 friction, w/ poor stances to clip. Each succesive bolt is also runout. A fall 20' - 30' up on first pitch would likely be a death fall onto sharp rocks at bottom. Above belay anchors, there is 80' - 100' of unprotected runout, sometimes on moss and lichen. One can exit right most easily, or 5.8 corner to left.
