The first pitch is only about 60 feet up to a small ledge with a pine tree on it and a set of shuts. 2 pitch is a about 80 feet and is also bolted and has a set of shuts. 3rd pitch isn't really worth doing unless you just want to reach lunch ledge.It's more like a 4th class climb.Fun climb for beginers or somebody just starting to lead. It starts at the same point as Skip to my Lou and just right of Peek A Boo.

We had been wanting to climb in the dark for awhile and decided to pick a couple of easy routes to the top. I lead the first and third pitches while my partner lead the second pitch. It was just as easy in the dark as it is in the daylight. The temperature was ideal and it felt more like a scramble than an actual climb.
I have climbed this route a half-dozen times or so and it is fun for what it is but I really only climb it on the behalf of others. This was my second's first ever multi-pitch climb and he ended up enjoying it once it was over with. I do like the exposure on the second pitch and I don't bother with additional pro as the bolts are more than adequate. If you do not pay attention on the second pitch, it is very easy to end up at the belay for Skip To My Lou. The third pitch is more of a walk than a climb but it is necessary to get to the tree ledge.
