3 out of 5 stars Bailure

Getting to the crux was soaking wet. The hand and foot holds were dripping. I could see this from the ground, but, I figured I could climb through it. I didn't like my gear options so I down climbed.

3 out of 5 stars One hard move.

Definitely has only one had move; however don't let previous comments fool you - the crux, is strenuous and technical though the gear is good.

4 out of 5 stars climbed in the rain today

It was pouring, then it let up. So we climbed in a light drizzle. Awesome!
