4 out of 5 stars Good Intro

Good route for learning the art of placing gear, little thin on feet at the early placements. Crack is a consistent hand jam the entire route.

3 out of 5 stars Which crack?

I don't recall if this is the crack on the left or the right - done both, this time we did the one on the right.

The start is interesting... the rest is classic crack climbing and stemming. If you want to protect the final moves to the anchor, bring some big gear - the crack widens up a lot near the top.
