5 out of 5 stars Climbed 2nd/3rd pitch

Did first pitch of mark of the Beast and traversed over because fatman flake looked like fun. Finished last two pitches on Harder than it looks and walked out to summit trail. The combination of these two routes is a blast!

4 out of 5 stars Nice warmup

Great climbing especially through Fatman flake. Would be best to continue through the first belay and onto the second at Broadway ledge. I finished up the deep black groove to the anchors of Dome Driver. Really nice but unprotected.

Second Second ascent by: theresister on 2010-05-15 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Harder Than It Looks

Longer slab climb that is easy. Three pitches. I followed last on this climb. We climbed with our packs to leave the area. The first belay station is not comfortable to stay for long. The second station is better. Top pitch is very easy after the first six feet. Walk off down the other side of the dome to the entrance.
