4 out of 5 stars Great stuff

JohnG linked P1 and P2 and I took P3. This is probably my favorite climb in the Gap. Challenging moves for 5.6 and I think this would be a solid 7 at the Gunks. 2 cruxes on P2 and some fun moves on P3 makes this a thoughful climb.

5 out of 5 stars Osprey

The lower of the two pitons at the first anchor was removed by hand.

A great climb, very sustained at the grade.

4 out of 5 stars Osprey

Great climb on mostly clean rock. Lotta loose stones at the top though. Easy climbing at the beginning but higher up is where the fun is, with some challenging roofs for the 5.6 climber.

Second Second ascent by: freakymodo on 2008-09-10 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Great route

Felt very exposed going up this route...lots of balancing. The climbing itself was pretty easy, but really needed to focus for this this one. First time I've ever experienced a hanging belay.
