The first 15 feet is the crux and it is slick. After the move it's pretty easy.

4 out of 5 stars Fun Multi-Pitch

This was our third route of the day. I lead both pitches. The start is quite interesting due to heavy polish from many years of use. It took me a few minutes to get the moves figured out. Mostly because I placed a cam in a hand jam that that was needed. Once I removed the cam, it all came together. It is a little tough for the grade. The first half of the second pitch was fairly fun too. I just followed the most difficult rock up to the trees. We then moved back down and around towards Gemini Crack. We only had a 70M rope so we chose the lowest pine tree for a rappel as none of the rings in this area are low enough for a 70. The tree already had bail gear attached to it. We were able to get down to the ledge above Left Up and use the set of rings there to get to the ground. Not the greatest route in the world but it is worth climbing at least once.

Second Second ascent by: binkus on 2012-04-03 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars first and second pitch

starts off difficult because it is very slick. One of the local guides told me that it used to be a rappel station for the boy scouts and the obvious smears that I kept trying to use were polished from their tennis shoes. Had fun with it though and second pitch has a nice finish to it.
