Description:

Start left of a huge dihedral, climb an easy face to a decent belay ledge. Second pitch is very fun and steep 5.5 to a huge ledge under the obvious roof. The third pitch avoids the infamous roof, and heads up trending left (5.4). Use either the Shockley's rappel, or wander about 40 feet (climber's) left to the Ribless rappel (very nice, bolted).

4 out of 5 stars Got rained off this one

I lead the first pitch and Kevin took the second pitch. We both decided that the soaked rock would not make for a pleasant 3rd pitch. Found out that chalk is pretty much all mental though. We will be back.

4 out of 5 stars My first multi-pitch, first trad climb

As the middle of 3 climbers, I can't call myself a true second - I cleaned no gear. Fell once on P2 when my arms pumped out at the crux. Wanted to do the ceiling, but will have to come back when I am stronger and more efficient. The views from the two belay ledges were stellar on a clear day. I can see why this one is a classic.

Yes, I did it without. No, I am not proud. Yes, I will do it with the next time. Damn it.
