3 out of 5 stars fun, tricky finish

fun lie back approach to the crux, with an easy chimney like section. Fun crack at the top, or you can maneuver over and slab climb around the crack

5 out of 5 stars *

Stem!! If the initial description is referring to ledge in upper pitch, Stem, stem, stem. Makes crux pretty mellow and good stances for pro placements, elemenating ledge danger.

3 out of 5 stars Rock quality is pathetic.

The beginning can be accomplished by a few lie-backs and a little bit of tight mantling on the interim pillars, but the rating needs to be re-adjusted as the rock quality has been reduced to near nothing with a lot of the cracks being pushed down to almost glass with chalk staining the rock itself.
