4 out of 5 stars A beloved nemesis

Each time I get on this I walk away thinking that I've learned its secrets. Each time I return I get spanked and have to learn it in a completely different way. This trip was no different. I'm inspired to spend a day climbing laps on this and learn its every nuance. Next time!

4 out of 5 stars Nice route

Blew my onsight when I ripped a big hold off the lieback. Otherwise clean and otherwise a great route. Slab moves at top little tricky when you're gripped. Rock is broken for 1st 20 feet.

Cleaned up the route on 2nd trip. Felt much easier second time around.

5 out of 5 stars really nice crack

This is a 3 star crack anyplace. Lyback into a thin hand jam, place gear, and go. long runout at the top that gets easier as you go higher. first bit of slab is 5.11.
