4 out of 5 stars Fun and interesting climb

Lots of rock loose from the main structure, but seems to be well keyed in place.

5 out of 5 stars First Trad excursion

Great fun on my first trad route.. got to ome back and do this one again and again. The book says 5.3 but it felt more like 5.5 to me.. but what do I know... I've been climbing sport for 4 years.

3 out of 5 stars Easy to get off route

We did a combination of the 5.3 route and then the 5.6 chimney route. Blocky with lots of options for pro and belays.

4 out of 5 stars fun in the sun

really great climb... got up there in the afternoon and started the 5.6 route... wasn't really sure where to belay from and got turned pretty quickly onto a 5.9-10 pitch... we were going to sleep on top but it started to get dark so we camped out inbetween the prow and chimney.... climbed this the next day... really fun, safe, exposed and satisfying... worth every second.
