4 out of 5 stars Good trianing

I led this with a mixed group Mountaineers. Good route to introduce concepts of Alpine climbing. Great variety of styles between face, crack, offwidth, semi-chimney, pockets, knobs, traversing, scrambling, exposure, both bolted and gear anchors, etc. We even got rain and wind to round out the experience. Did as 3 pitches for better communication on the upper face.

4 out of 5 stars Enjoyable route

Fun route with some exposure. Pretty cool to climb right above the road.
