Swapped leads on this with my wife the day I turned 30. A very fun climb to a unique summit featuring miniature arches and permanent pools of water that are teeming with life (little minnows).

4 out of 5 stars Conn Route

A easy route makes this ideal to get others started leading or great for 1st time followers too.. The rap chains might be a little hairy to get to form some. I've taken a lot of people up this as there 1st route.
