Great route, there is a lot of exposure, and it was a little tough for a new climber, but I had a good group of people to climb with and I had a blast.

Descent Options:

4 raps with a 70 M rope or 2 raps with double ropes.

5 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Really nice route, but be ready for traffic jams at the 3rd pitch anchor, which is part of the rap route! We didn't link any pitches to give the party ahead of us more time and to reduce rope drag. Swung leads with Ladybug.

5 out of 5 stars fun half day of climbing

Fairly easy for the grade, but fun nonetheless. Definitely link pitches 2-3 and 4-5.

5 out of 5 stars 4 Raps with a 60m Rope

Fun rambling route up to the top. I'd say that the third pitch is probably the hardest, but nothing more than an average 5.9.

At the top if you rap off the back side from the face where you just came up on the second set of anchors -- about 2 meters away from the top chains of the route -- I know you can rap to the bottom in 4 raps with a 60m rope. To get to the second rap anchors you'll have to walk about 10m on a big ledge; going down on those anchors will put you at the third belay anchors of the original route. Straight down from there is the last set of anchors (~4/5 of the 60m down, kind of hard to see below the bulge) which will put you back on the deck.

Oh and finally, if you bring up enough draws and a 70m rope I know that the second & third pitches can be linked.. but it makes communicating with your belayer that much harder on the section that Kimkrif pointed out already as being kind of through.
