4 out of 5 stars Very cool route

We did the 10b variation. I don't know why you wouldn't. It's a more direct line and well protected.

5 out of 5 stars Linkup

link P1 (5.4) with P2 (5.9 PG). Start on right side of detached flake (face is boring) The crux is following the serpentine line (this one wanders). Start of P2 a bit run out from large belay ledge to roof. Turn the 1st roof right of the nose on a tiny crimp. Tiny cams protect the roof (blue and silver metolius). Crank through and move left and work up to the large roof 40 ft up and left. at the mungy bush filled break move out right below the huge roof 10 ft to big slung rap tree or up 10 more ft to GT ledge. Great climbing, onsight will keep you thinking
