4 out of 5 stars George and Martha

Not as great as Air Guitar, but still really worth doing. I remember a short wide section at the top, puzzling but not as bad as it looks.

Great climb - remember being pretty pumped near the top and had no more big gear.

5 out of 5 stars geoge and martha

awesome climb! the bottom 30 feet is too big for fingers, but too small for good hand jams so you just have to power through it on the great feet. The feet in that section are so good it's like a slender ladder, and you can step right for a long stem in several places. The pro is awesome all the way, you can see what you need from the bottom. The second 40 feet is sinker hand jams. Bring a half dozen hand sized cams (red, yellow and blue camalots). I think I had 4 yellow. At the top it widens up to a 5 inch crack and a 4 camalot fit's perfect there. The secret is to reach way deep, back on the left and grab the flake with your left hand. Believe it or not, after that, it's just a layback move against your toe jams. Very classic climb on awesome rock. Not at all the shattered rock you find on many other vantage climbs.

4 out of 5 stars great fun

Big face holds at the bottom with enjoyable jamming in the mid section. The top can be tricky until you find the secret to avoid grunting up the OW.
