Great little jump to the top with a great view yet huge exposure. Not recommended for beginners due to the exposure Literally a few jugs and a couple steps vertically and you're there!!
Great view of the "West Wall" Eagle cave can be located on the other side of the north end of the west wall.
Great cave for a nice rapel to "the bat cave"

I give the climb a 5.1. You can perform the climb in typical ascent shoes with ease. Great for kids to learn on that has some areas of exposure if it's desired.
Scenery is great depending on weather and season.
First ascent of the Mt was in 83 with the first ascent of the Chimney in 86 and then every year after until the early 90's. I need to get back to this place!!!

..back again 8/07 with family. Son and I climbed the chimney and climbed RAD, a 5.4 overhang.
