3 out of 5 stars It grows on you

The first time I climbed this rout I was not impressed but I have climbed it 3 or 4 times since and have grown to enjoy it. The rock quality isn't great though.

3 out of 5 stars Not great

Pretty crumbly.

Edit: just read my other log. Should have taken my own advice! The rain started just as I got on Beer Fight. That place hates me.

3 out of 5 stars Dirty Bird - 5.8

I did not like this route the first time on it (a toprope ascent); however, coming back to it for a lead it was okay. Good place to warm up as the climb isn't difficult, the rock is crumbly in spots, but not on critical holds, and is close to the parking lot.

2 out of 5 stars Weird weather, sketchy rock

More rock crumbling off this climb than I'm comfortable with. Add that to the wind and rain ripping through the canyon and it was pretty much a bust. We were hoping just to warm up on this easy climb and then go try Fire Spire, but we got shut down. :(

Weather permitting, I don't think I'd spend the time on this climb again- there is plenty else up there!
