3 out of 5 stars With Mike C

I guess we did the cow center for the first pitch. There was no anchor on the ledge, and getting to the bolts down and left looked like a pain, so we kept going up. Mike led pitch 2, I did the first. First pitch was incredibly easy and well-protected, only hiccup was face climbing around a tree. Second pitch got your attention in the middle, as pr was thin to nonexistent as you smeared your way up the chimney/dihedral. I used an arm bar to protect against slippage, which didn't happen anyway. Wed descended from the anchors to the ledge with a 70 meter rope, climbed 4th class up and right to a tree with slings, and were barely able to make the dirt with a 70 meter single rope rap from there.

Fun climb. Given a time limit by my belayer, I ran up it in about 6 minutes. Quality climbing.
