5 out of 5 stars best summit for the easy climb. 5.8 A1 or about .10b

we had a wind advisory that really made things interesting! we had to climb in short spurts between the gusts. did it all free and the second bolt section seemed harder than 10a unless I was missing some important beta. chimney wasn't chossy but I didn't climb deep in the chimney where it was worse. I only worked my way deeper to set a couple of pieces of pro, otherwise I stayed on the more solid rock. I highly recommend it!!!

3 out of 5 stars great summit

While the summit has amazing exposure, I found the rest of the route to be pretty chossy, especially the chimney pitch.
