4 out of 5 stars Did all three pitches

P1 is fun and has two well protected cruxes. P2 is 5.2 dirty but easy fun. P3 was a hoot. The final head wall looks scary but once you start climbing it you realize that it's rather easy. Well worth doing. Two ropes gets u to bee bite belay. Another two rope rappel returns u to your packs.

The 5.8 variation is very fun, well protected, pumpy crack climb.

2 out of 5 stars Not Great, 3rd pitch is the best.

Don't just do the 1st pitch, the 3rd is the best by far. The 1st pitch has some loose rocks around the 2nd crux, and the entire 2nd pitch is a jungle. The 3rd pitch in contrast looks difficult but the moves reveal themselves as you climb. Be ready for the hard top out.

3 out of 5 stars a very fun climb

I have never been on this climb. It was fun. Two cruxes on P1, both very well protected. Nice climb. Worth doing.
