3 out of 5 stars Hex galore

1st pitch felt tougher than 5.7 but has a bunch of perfect spots for your larger hexes. The first anchor you reach is actually a rap anchor for a 60m rope, just a little higher is the true ledge ending the first pitch (on the decent a 70m rope WILL barely work from this spot). CAREFUL route is a bit dirty and mossy.

4 out of 5 stars Good climb

Tom lead, Julia and I followed. Rapped off the gulley to the left. Rock was cold this time of year.

4 out of 5 stars fun

went to the top on this one today- much better than just cragging 3/4's of the first pitch. i've also decided that the right hand start is 5.7, but can be devious if you dont have much wide experience.
