3 out of 5 stars nice

vegetated with plenty of cheatgrass, but pretty dry considering the moisture we've gotten lately

5 out of 5 stars First Multi-Pitch!

Nice, easy crack climbing for a lot of the climb. Good holds. The 3rd pitch with the 5.9 overhang was a good challenge, but everything else was just good plain fun. Would recommend doing it in 2 pitches. (combine 1st and 2nd pitches)

4 out of 5 stars onsight

Really fun route, you just need to be able to get over not touching the bird shit... I had a big problem with rope drag for some reason on the 3rd pitch, all my pieces had long slings on them under the roof too, oh well

4 out of 5 stars ??actual date

This route draws me back time and time again. Even though it is dirty in places the overall route is good. Turning the roof definitely takes some muscle, but its over quick and your back on your feet.

5 out of 5 stars fun stuff

had to hang for a while right at the overhang. My hands went numb from the crack, it was a little early in the season the rock was warm but not the crack
