5 out of 5 stars Super classic

Jams, traverses, steep, and juggy. This is a must-do route, but is not 5.7! 5.8, but a stout 5.8.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Good route. The chimney at the start kinda sucks but so does most chimneys, in my humble opinion.

The second pitch is a good traverse.

Stopped at the chains at the top of the second pitch cause beer in food in the truck was calling.
