3 out of 5 stars Reasonable.

Much more straightforward than Tower Crack (to the left), which has a lower grade. If you get stuck toward the top try a long stemming move on the right face if you're tall.

4 out of 5 stars What a corner

Did it in mittens, and at least there were nice places to rest and blow on my fingers! Very cold, very awesome third climb ever.
