3 out of 5 stars Spicy

Very weird gear. Wanders a lot. Felt like we were on a typewriter going back and forth so much. Pretty sustained I felt though the 30mph wind probably had some effect.

3 out of 5 stars finally got around...

...to finishing this whole route. I had done the asy pitch before, but never the 2nd and 3rd. Made it much harder on the second pitch by going left at the bolt above the belay. Not really a classic route, and definitely some runouts over marginal gear.

5 out of 5 stars Fun Route

Fun gear placement the entire way. Exposure and views are amazing. A must do for 5.10 climbers.

4 out of 5 stars first pitch only

Bad gear before bolt on first pitch (R/X). Crux is just above bolt and a little run-out to the next piece of good gear above the bolt too.
