5 out of 5 stars north face

long runout had a good 40 footer. Bring long slings we used two ropes and did a 3 man party climb with packs on. The rope drag was lovely because of all the switch backs with pro placements. Used alot of small cams aliens and c3 camalots. Not 5.6 but rated this way because of the runout I guess. Slab gecko climbing with little to no holds on some of it. Smear on!

Bailed on the 5th pitch due to water. Slab climbing + long runouts + water = one scary-ass time. But plans to come back are in progress.
