5 out of 5 stars .

There is a large falcon nest under the anchors of this climb. This climb should be avoided until the end of the falcon season.

Super fun sequence at the crux. Left some blood at the crux of this climb. The climb looks short from the ground, but don't be fooled it's long. I had to skip a few bolts at the top.

4 out of 5 stars good enough

warmed-up on this. The new guide book would have helped, was one draw short, ran-out the slabby section.

3 out of 5 stars mini epic

poor choice to climb this one with icicles at the start, a streak of ice crossed the route about half way up. decided to rap off the closest bolt (glue in) when i dropped my device, never to be found. ended up leaving a bail biner but not before hanging in space for 20 minutes as this all happened - not fun, i'll be back though

2 out of 5 stars OMG

I can climb way harder then 5.8 and this was so scary at the top. The last few moves through the buttress was ridiculous. LOL. I don't ever want to do this climb again. I'd rather do Dolt or Jolt.

60m rope required!
