4 out of 5 stars West Face to Lightening Crack

Began on this route through the first pitch to the Lightening Crack on the second pitch. First few moves are on shady sandstone, but rock quality improves above that. Definately a fun route, and was still able to reach the better part of the Lightening Crack.

5 out of 5 stars fun, wellprotected for peshastin

Most people aren't used to this type of climbing making it seem a little harder. Good experience to learn what your shoes can do!
