Description:

Incredibly clean route up the barb flake. 3-4 fun moderate pitches followed by 3 amazing crack pitches (5.9, 5.9, 5.10). Finish on the last couple of pitches of the North Ridge. Great introductory 5.10 in the park as the crux is short and well protected by a fixed pin.

3 out of 5 stars Fun but short

This route is pretty short given the long approach. The crux pitch is worthwhile though, and the summit is great.
