2 out of 5 stars South Ridge

OS w/ Adley, my first sandstone climb thought the rock was brittle and sandy, the anchors at the top looked a little sketchy and the tourists make it impossible to have fun while climbing

I guess you could place something but by the time you get to that point you're almost to the pin anyways. I didn't bother. Nice climb with lots of gawkers.
