Onsight Onsight ascent by: Uboat509PIB on 2009-09-09 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Easy but eats big pro.

I led the first pitch and the crack ate two # 5 camalots and two #4s and I could have used another #5. With a sixty meter half rope I was able to reach a small verticle crack past the horn, but only just. Rope drag is rough on this one. Seconded the second pitch. There were a couple 5.5 moves but mostly 5.4. I started the lead on the third pitch but we had to bail due to weather.

Solo Solo ascent by: impreza44 on 2003-07-30 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Great warm up

First solo. Fun climb and fast to complete. Overhangs were the hardest to mentally overcome. Sweet and easy solo.

I feel like we were off route at times...but no big deal. easy slabs are easy slabs. second pitch was GREAT! nice frictioning up to crazy bathtubs.

4 out of 5 stars beautiful, fun climb

great climb for me to practice placing gear, being new to trad and multi-pitch. we were blessed with sun all day to melt most of the snow. topout was a little scary, as I found out climbing shoes suck on snow. fun route, but hard for us to discern the route after the arch ended.
