This has a fun start to a thin face. It's a great climb.

4 out of 5 stars re thinking this

The move off the ledge is easy, the face climbing above is thin and reachy. Fun climb.

But then the rest is just "meh". Not a great climb.

Onsight Onsight ascent by: lucander on 2010-01-26 (View Climbing Log)

2 out of 5 stars Lower Eaves

Fun low crux with enjoyable climbing above. The "optional" belay/rap tree mentioned in latest Grey Dick guidebook is in bad shape & has no anchor. Continue to the top by trending slightly right, then up with a really cool move.

BETA ALERT: crazy right hand undercling that you crank below your hip to a jug above. It's 5.10 movement on 5.7+ rock because the feet are so good.
