4 out of 5 stars Fun

Supposed to be 2 pitches but there's a tree with webbing so you can stop after the first- 2nd pitch is off width

3 out of 5 stars yeah, bd #2s...

I set my bd 1 & 2 early and didn't have anything for the last 15 feet before the ledge. I definitely didn't have big enough pro for the offwidth and had already climbing hi-just, so I rapped from the tree.
