Description:

the traverse at the beginning is a little tricky, and with a kinda run out pendulum fall waiting for you, it feels good to move onto the sections that are just vertically run out. It earns it's R rating. Very fun climb.

Descent Options:

two rope rappel or walk off

4 out of 5 stars long route

the beginning had me on my toes, and the rock was still all covered in crap so I had to be careful. I climbed up to the top and then downclimbed it. Downclimbing and reversing the crux moves with the rope all run out was certainly a buzz. The climb isn't that hard, but there aren't any jugs either, so I definitely took the utmost care with my movements.
