4 out of 5 stars Two days in a row

Don't forget P2...it's lots of fun and has some very nice exposure. It eats gear all the way up. The crux moves are at the top of the corner as you exit and move right.

4 out of 5 stars Found a new way to protect the crux

I was essentially doing the move on TR, with a nice red BD cam stuffed in the upper pod. Easy peasy joy.

4 out of 5 stars Always fun

This is a fun climb. ONce through the crux, the climb is super easy. Even the crux is easy (and well protected)
