Description:

classic lumpy ridge climbing. Classic variations available too. 5.7 or 5.9 start into a left facing corner with a hand crack. Top the crack out and place some pro, make a fantastic 5.8 move jamming two thin cracks. p2 traverses easy ledges to a belay with a chain. p3 is the money. Hand jams, gradually flaring as you go up. Pick your exiting pitch, the cave, hurly traverse or better yet cheap date, final chapter etc.!

5 out of 5 stars Classic in 4 pitches

We linked p1 and p2, 198 ft. The next pitch has the long perfect crack and the spicy roof. Should have linked the last 2 pitches but was confused on the cave exit. Turned out much easier than expected with the left flake to the chalked left crack edge then the thank god jug. Every pitch was 4 star except p3.

4 out of 5 stars Awesome

This is a really nice climb, especially the second pitch. Cruised up this leading all the pitches. The start is a little spicy and I personally found it to be the hardest move on the route.
