4 out of 5 stars Fun but easy

Seemed easier than the grade the first time, the second I made it harder by pulling the small roof. I think you must go straight through the small roof to achieve this grade, otherwise much lower if you traverse left to the arete.

4 out of 5 stars Fun Climb

Nice climbing. Slabby to a small roof. A little easier if I'd used the arete nearby.

3 out of 5 stars I used the arete

I liked this climb. I used the arete, I couldn't make the overhang this time.

3 out of 5 stars Pull the bulge.

Staying right and pulling the bulge is fun with positive holds. 5.9ish this way.
