5 out of 5 stars Surprising 2nd pitch

Fun 1st pitch takes lots of pro. Can climb to the left side or right side - the face takes plenty of pro. Second pitch was surprisingly steep; seemed steeper than 1st pitch. Rapped off of rappel rings at the top of The Burn (Ectasy Jr ledge). 60 m rope didn't reach ground until it was weighted during rappel - and just barely.

This climb was so good that I can only imagine how good Ecstasy is. It's exposed with great great the whole way.
