2 out of 5 stars Which way???

Did this route today. Could not find the belay at the top of P2-- just saw one really rusty pin. Also-- which way does this route go at the chimney. Guidebook said to pass the chimney but not to what side. We went right and it felt harder than a 5.4! Also some suspect looking loose blocks. Where we yet again off route? :)

3 out of 5 stars A good climb.

Challenging roof on 1st pitch, burly. 2nd pitch crux is probably easier if tall, but fun either way.

5 out of 5 stars this was really fun

Each pitch was very different from the last. P1 roof was thoughtful, but, well protected. P2 bulge was well protected with a shiny new bolt. I got lost of p2 and built a gear anchor near the v trough chimney. P3 was mellow and happy.
