Description:

First pitch starts at the foot of the buttress and climbs to a large ledge, the Crows Nest -- many variations. 2nd pitch moves to the right end of the ledge and follows a corner crack system to the top of the buttress. Outstanding climb for its grade and very popular.

4 out of 5 stars Windy Finish

Great climb! I enjoyed it a lot. Not difficult at all. It was really windy the day we climbed it, so communicating was difficult and getting down to the rap rings was a little tricky.
