5 out of 5 stars Awesome!

We actually didn't top out. We got stuck behind a party of three which cost us a lot of time. Did up through pitch 5. If only we got there 15 minutes earlier. They were racking up when we got there. I led pitches 1,3,4,and 5. Everything free except the 5.11 friction move at the start of pitch 5. I didn't want to risk falling on my belayer, so I stepped on the bolt. Must come back to finish this climb! Pitch 3 was amazing!

5 out of 5 stars Notes on a summer ascent

Climbed with Ted Hammond and Joel O'Connell. Ted led the hard pitches. This is an excellent climb with hard moves, a hanging belay, and lots of exposure. The cow's mouth is really cool.
