5 out of 5 stars Amazing

Great route, the first pitch was the funnest of the climbing and there is enough metal that if you're confident climbing 5.7 you can lead it with almost no trad placements (i placed one cam on the first pitch). Coming around the corner on the second pitch was AMAZING, beautiful exposure. All in all go with a minimal rack, i place 2 pieces of gear on the second pitch and one piece on the first pitch, all small stuff except for the #2 cam on the second pitch just before the runout face.

5 out of 5 stars Second up

I cleaned the route and had a fun time following the crack. Couple good and stretchy moves on the face before getting to the 1st belay ledge.

Climbing is ok, the best part is the great summit.

5 out of 5 stars Classic!

Great climb, It was really great to do it with my old man who had done it in the 60's with Greg Lowe. A bit of an intense Rappel.
