5 out of 5 stars Absolute classic

Those guys in the falcon guide where right, the approach is tough but you are rewarded with some of the best rock around! The first pitch is a beautiful crack with the second and third pitch a little less like a crack and more like face climbing. These pitches are much harder to protect than the first, bring those dusty nuts, cams won't be as easy to place.

Amazing climb for the grade with beautiful exposure and top notch belay stations. The upper pitches aren't 'R' with modern gear, smallest pieces placed were BD stoppers #3-5 and Metolius TCUs 00-0 among plenty of larger pro, all solid. I led pitches 1 and 3, seconded pitch 2. Bring 2 ropes for rap, the walkoff sucks.
