5 out of 5 stars Onsight 2P

This was a great crack and slab climb with a fun little roof finish. I climbed with Lauren Hendry Parsens and wanted to pick a classic easy route for us both to enjoy, one I would feel confident to lead and one I know she could climb for a second time out climbing. I did find the 5.6 route stiff for the grade. I think I would grade it at 5.7 for sure. There were a couple committing sections that had you on your toes but all in all it was super fun and I would love to lead it again. Can be done as one pitch but be aware of rope drag and losing communication with your belay partner. I think I prefer doing it as two pitches as you can enjoy hanging out under the roof while you belay your second up enjoying the views etc.

4 out of 5 stars An enjoyable romp?

There's gear, there're feet, there're solution pockets. It's all there in abundance.

Really fun climb with lots of interesting pockets and holes. The beginning is interesting and then the fun crack/slab. The runout to the top is pretty bad, definately into the danger zone but it's still pretty easy. The last bit is interesting as well with some weird crack climbing.
