4 out of 5 stars Fun, thin face climbing

Great climb, rarely occupied. Nice hidden gem. Protects very well with small gear. Lots of fun.

3 out of 5 stars fun face climbing

Often empty...easy access. This is a very fun climb with thin face moves and reasonable pro.

Crux is near the top. Thin face moces, thin gear at the crux. It's fun climb. Walk off the uberfall descent.
