4 out of 5 stars fun climb

this was a tough climb for me, having been my second outdoor climb (first was tiny livezey rock in philly). there were obvious, rather easy moves but i had a tough time in the cave. finally got it and was elated to reach the top! (thanks to its many resting points)

4 out of 5 stars Fun Chimney.

Very easy climb with obvious moves. Flows well with lots of rest points. Excellent stem into chimney.
