4 out of 5 stars awesome multi pitch route

a great and varied multipitch climb. there are a few ways to start, I did the polished 5.9 fingers way and it was a little hard. park outside the gate if you might be there after dark.

5 out of 5 stars 5.9 variation with Nikki. Great climb

Great climb. Classic. Mantel was very easy and secure, just keep it under control. I thought the 1st roof was harder and less secure. Also, ensure you know where belay stations are before starting each pitch as they were much less obvious than I thought.

5 out of 5 stars Finished

Fist try a year ago ended at the first belay due to a thunder storm. Made it to the top just before the rain this year. Led the 2nd pitch. Made it over both the bulgy crux and the mantel on the first try!!! Was still a stiff 8 on parts.

5 out of 5 stars Nutcracker

Started super early (a must). This climb is absolutely superb. Great history and great rock to boot - first pitch was awesome fun for me.
