4 out of 5 stars Great warmup

Great intro to Yosemite multi-pitch climbing! Found the descent trail much easier than everyone, even in pouring rain. Bonus: caught a baby mountain king snake on th way down as well!

4 out of 5 stars Nice views, easy route, pain in the ass descent

The climb is easy - protects well, varied climbing, most seems easier than 5.4. The descent is NOT 300 yards east - it is much further, and fairly slow going on a faint trail that seems to disappear often in slides. I didn't see rap rings up top - though you can bail/rap of the route at several of the lower pitches easily. Nice place to have lunch up top.
