2 out of 5 stars not my favorite

Tough route finding, definitely 5.9 squeeze chimney on the start of P3.
P1 was fun, 2 ok 3 was good after the squeeze move.
Led P1 and part of 2.

4 out of 5 stars Hmm

I would have to agree with the below, unless we were off route, there was a definite 5.9 squeeze exit. Protected well though and was a good route introduction to Turkey Rocks.

4 out of 5 stars Not A Good Warmup

This is a really fun climb but it felt significantly harder than 5.7 to get to the summit. The first pitch is easy and fairly fun. The second pitch is a total classic with flakes and knobs. Small nut placements will make this safe. The last pitch felt like the business. It's a chimney with a slung chockstone in it. Felt almost like a 5.9 for the crux. Everything till then was easy, maybe 5.6. Those last moves to get out of the chimney though were heinous.
