5 out of 5 stars 2nd time, still enjoyable.

climbed with the Hungarian Akos. We had a blast. Great climb with no run out or dangerous spots. Splitter, small roof, the bigger one. Only one 5.9 move on big roof. Good fun

Second Second ascent by: Superpedro on 2010-11-13 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Great commiting climb

First climb in Yosemite. Really good. Liked how to use the tree to get started in the first pitch, how easy the second pitch felt, and how good it felt to not be leading on the committing crux roof move ;-)
Oh, and did I mention how I hate (and am really bad) at hand jamming? Damn you, Yosemite! :p
