4 out of 5 stars An underused route

that is really good. Aside from being a tad dirty this route is an excellent crack climbing adventure. Note that you can rap twice to the ground with a 70 using the lower set of slings on the first rap, tie knots in the rope just in case.

5 out of 5 stars Very Fun

The liebacks on the second pitch are comitting, but bomber. I thought the crux was the weird face moves 10 feet below the top of the 2nd pitch...

3 out of 5 stars Little Windy

Had a lot of fun following this. Other than waiting for a group who split the climb into 3 pitches and the wind blowing dirt into our faces, this was a sweet climb.
