3 out of 5 stars Fun climb

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

3 out of 5 stars Very interesting face climb that's rarely occupied

We stuck close to the uberfall due to the impending rain. It never rained, but, we did enjoy this climb. It's thin and pg protectable with small gear.

4 out of 5 stars Had fun on this today.

The other day there was a large snake in the horzonal above the crack. We opted not to climb WM that day. Today all was clear. Nice face climbing.
