Description:

Start in a right-facing corner, then move up to a left-facing corner, then move right again to the pine trees. There is a fun little roof in the middle and the left-facing corner is short, but blank and fun (wide hands). The route ends at the big ledge, but easier and dirty climbing leads up another pitch to the top of the towers.

2 out of 5 stars Not a 5.6 route, but a fun climb.

I found the start to be pretty awkward, but the rest of the route was pretty straightforward. This climb is a hard 5.7...maybe even 5.8

4 out of 5 stars Good fun 5.6

More sustained crack down low, but not terribly long and finishes at a ledge. I plugged a cam and climbed down to rest at the start, then finished up the route. Past the first ten feet it's a good six. Consistent with T-wall ratings.

3 out of 5 stars Not for the beginner

This will definitely seem harder than a 6. Kind of broken up except for the beginning.

3 out of 5 stars good trad practice!!

my 1st trad lead and it was alot harder than a 6! akward crack to start but after that it got easier. good placements.. there are anchors off to the right or you can continue up to anchors higher
