Second Second ascent by: gblauer on 2012-09-02 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars Three distinct cruxes in two pitches

Crux on P1 is a puzzler at first. Cruxes on P2 are very different from each other, both interesting and committing.

What a crux move on P2! I was hesitating for some time before committing.

4 out of 5 stars Good route

Followed p1, led p2. Found the face crux on p2 to be somewhat baffling for a few minutes.

Red Point Red Point ascent by: porkchop_express on 2009-06-04 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars got it, second time trying.

I tried onsighting this about a month ago and was very frustrated by the second pitch crux. Tried it again today and was very pleased to send it on my initial attempt. The move out of the alcove is committing if you don't know what comes next because you are unable to see anything that comes next...that said it is a great feeling to get it under my belt- I look forward to doing it again!
