4 out of 5 stars fun and easy corner

Watch out for a slack rope/runout, though, as there are lots of projecting bits to bounce your butt off of!

4 out of 5 stars Good Lead

Clean onsight lead. takes lots of gear. Take a lot of short slings. Someone warned me to watch out for the nose shaped rock near the top (small roof) on the right of the dihedral.

3 out of 5 stars Good Beginner Route

If you're a beginner practicing trad who likes to throw a lot of gear in the wall be aware that you'll need to climb unprotected through what feels like the crux. Don't worry though. There's a big ledge (where you're last placement for protection is) that will break you're fall. There are some very large loose rocks at the top and the route is a bit dirty.

4 out of 5 stars One of the best 5.6 climbs in CT

My son and I took turns leading this climb after work on Monday. Climb the low angle ramp up to the verticle dihedral. The lower verticle dihedral is the crux of the climb. We protected it with Red C4, Purple LC and a Gold C4s. If you are a new leader and not experienced climbing dihedrals climb it on a TR first to figure out the moves. Lose rocks on top. A little dirty from mud running off the top after a very rainy June.

3 out of 5 stars Probley should have warmed up

I had a few sections where I wanted to bail, but pulled through. Pretty well protected, but a few loose stones.
