4 out of 5 stars Nice Setting

Be very careful on the chimney and right above as the rock is incredibly fragile. Much better rock on the more difficult climbing above. I pulled through on draws, but the second pitch could go free.

Good ole soft entrada, very windy. Could probably make the rap with 1 60m and then down climb a bit. Ryan Beavers
