5 out of 5 stars absolute classic climb with great variety!!

someone else mentioned that if this route were in the trapps there would be a constant line at the base. i couldnt agree more. the entire route is sustained, challenging climbing with fantastic variation in the first and second pitches. the gear is there throughout, though it is sparse and finicky and not always obvious.
climbed with greg. i led P1 and greg led P2. the first pitch was thrilling for me and my proudest send yet. loved it!!!

4 out of 5 stars The P2 roof looks scarier than it is...

And the rest is juggy fun after that. There would be a line for this route if it were in the Trapps. We had it all to ourselves on a blue-bird, warm autumn day. Worth the walk.

4 out of 5 stars Interesting

I am glad I got on this climb... I led both pitches. The guidebook considers the first pitch to be the harder one, and calls the second pitch 5.8-, but it was definitely the harder one for me, because of the reach. I could not get the opening hold on the roofs by standing on good footholds, and had to resort to a bit of trickery that (I am pretty sure) I would not have been able to do if 5.8 was my limit.

The first pitch was fun, but I ended up with completely unnecessary 20-foot run-out at the top of the first pitch.
