Description:

A stunning line up a beautiful corner. Unusual climbing for the gunks, lots of vertical crack action! Steep and commiting, and a good introduction to climbing at "The Bank."

4 out of 5 stars Did it again today

Both cruxes felt much easier, but, the entire climb felt harder today. Not sure why. So much fun, nice isolated feeling. Great climb.

5 out of 5 stars wow what an amazing climb

so much fun. We did it in two pitches, a distinct crux on each pitch. The isolation added to the excitement.

We did not rap the large white pine tree; it's dead.
