4 out of 5 stars Deceptively Akward

The first bit is a bit harder than it looks with an off balance stretch to place the first piece of gear. A fall would definately tear up the ankles. It might be easier to approach from farther left but it's run out a little farther. The rest is fairly fun and easy with good stemming and jams. Belaying before the very top of the tower will ease rope drag or you can do what I did and follow the bolted 5.7 (Arch Route Direct) and belay from those anchors.

Came so freaking close to taking my first fall on gear on this one. I thought the beggining was easier.

used soloist..the beginning moves are deceptive and thin. place a 3.5-5 camalot before trying to enter the crack proper..the climbing is easier to the left at the bottom then traverse in. good climbing and pro after that.
