2 out of 5 stars Nice Route

I have climbed this route many times. You can illigally drive across the old abandoned railroad bridge drive up the narrow 4 wheel road and park right at the base. The bridge takes a little getting used to. My climbing partner (MT) always got out of the car while I drove across checking it for "structural integrity."

4 out of 5 stars Bee Careful

Great route; a small wasp nest was encountered about 1/4 way up in the flake. They were very annoyed with me but graciously allow me to climb around them...Bee careful!
