4 out of 5 stars Amazing !

Such a fun climb ! Took a few friends over here to teach them the basics. Was very nice not being busy or really seeing anyone at all.
The drive from skull hollow in the back way to burma road to the switchback in the road is FTW

4 out of 5 stars Quite an adventure!

It is quite a hike to get here and requires a good read of the maps/pictures available to find the right spot. For our 2nd pitch, we took the sharp right out of the cave. I believe this is the traditional 2nd pitch, but from what I've read, most people these days follow the bolts up and to the left (and may go all the way on to the summit). The shoulder at the top of the traditional 2nd pitch was a fun little spot to hang out though. Beautiful view from the summit. We did a 2-rope rappel down. Watch your knot pulling down the rope though - both we and the group before us got it stuck on a ledge just a few feet below the anchors and it was a challenge to pull it free.
