4 out of 5 stars Hard Routefindg, Fun Climb, Great Location

This is a really cool climb that is fairly difficult to get to. The first pitch is fantastic. Unfortunately I jerked up the second pitch and went through some dihedral which was still cool but apparently not the second pitch. This doesn't get climbed much so beware some loose rock within cracks.
