Description:

A great five pitch route, easily done in three pitches. Lots of good, moderate crack climbing on great rock. last pitch sprouted a new pin unfortunately taking the true flavor out of this fun pitch. Best to run the last two pitches together, as the crux of the entire climb is trying to get gear in 10 feet up off the last belay.

4 out of 5 stars great day

Climbed this one with Danno. I led the first pitch, he led the harder last two pitches. The first pitch was the best I thought though :))

4 out of 5 stars First In LCC

Thanks, Haley. Good stuff. Glad I didn't have to do that last pitch too. Rapping off in the gloaming and walking off in the dark was fantastic. Looking for the trail near the "breathing cave" was great.
