Greg lead the first 300 or so feet and I lead the remainder. Rapped off the route with one 60M rope. No rope problems or water at the base.

3 out of 5 stars Fun easy climbing

Thought there were some fun bits in there. Did a variation off to the left of the first pitch that was probably not 5.1.

5 out of 5 stars Fun solo

Partners bailed so I ended up soloing these 4 pitches. Really fun time repelling down the east gully into the Red Zinger area!
