4 out of 5 stars stout!

bring a #4 for the opening moves, and crack technique for the upper bit. If you are a crack climber it will feel 5.7. If you are from the east coast and are climbing this because it's the only thing in the part that is 5.7...then it will feel like 5.9+. Keep looking to the sides and behind you for backsteps and stems. it's all there!

4 out of 5 stars 5.7 my ass

But still fun! Dont be fooled by the rating. Take a few 2's and 3's c4s in addition to a "normal" rack. The cave at the top is really awesome.

HARD for the grade. Worst crack of all time. Do not climb after having hiked Angels Landing.
