5 out of 5 stars Sweet!!!

Super fun route. I just wish the 2nd pitch corner was longer. Definitely on my ticklist to lead.

5 out of 5 stars fine line

A bit of an alpine feel on a 45 degree, windy day, but a great, great route anyway. Fight the leg pump on the 1st pitch. Lots of thin hands to hand-size pro. 2nd pitch traverses about 50 ft right to 3 pin anchor at the top of the corner. West side trail seems like easier approach.

4 out of 5 stars Great.

Great, continuously interesting climbing. Did p1 and p2, then rapped from 3 pitons atop North Ridge.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent quality

Excellent climb, would definitely repeat it. Jugs and jams with an occasional face traverse to the right. Was able to do it as one pitch to a real good belay ledge with a 60m rope.
