4 out of 5 stars Tube

Came back to overcome fear - 2 summers prior, took the pendulum swing fall at the crux and brushed over the knobs below (a soft catch makes the fall fine), then, when topping out, jostled a tree on the ledge and a swarm of yellow jackets flew out and stung me 5 times!

5 out of 5 stars tricky

the start has good pro, but is slightly tricky, then easier climbing up to the tube part, which is the cream of the climb.

3 out of 5 stars good route

a good route with a short crux. contrary to description, the fall is way clean (i took 3 @ 10-15 ft).
