4 out of 5 stars First ascent notes

Glad that everyone likes the first route I ever put up. What nobody knows is that there is a second pitch. You just go up the loose ledge about 100 feet and start up a short, right facing cut. There is a drilled pin about eight feet up. After that you follow the small right facing dihedral about seventy feet until it ends, step left onto a small belay ledge. It's a nice pitch that is a good addition to the first. It's maybe 5.8. If you do it then look up to the left of the the belay station, you'll see my original intent was to follow the massive overhanging dihedral all the way to the summit. It would have been interesting...

A lot easier than I heard it was. It's like 30 feet of slabby finger crack with big pods then like 50 of slabby sport climbing. There is only like one 5.9 move, and the rest is like 5.7. Fun and definetely worth doing if you are in the area.

This route is really fun. Actually, it is surprisingly fun! A little loose higher up, but nothing to worry about.
