lots of fun, provided you pick out the good sections of rock to go over... for endless route finding fun start at the north ridge and topout at the east which is a great variation(5.7). tons of loose rock though so be careful

4 out of 5 stars Good old fashon Oregon fun

Great solo for folks who like exposure. Easy low 5th class for two or so pitches. I brought some cord to fashon a Rangers Seat and a short segment of rope for rapping. I think gthe downclimb without would have been a bit hairy!

Winter ascent. No rock showing, but challenging snow/rime ice. Had to snow bollard rap the first step on the descent. Snowed on us, but hardly any wind. The kind of day where you don't want to come down.
