Straightforward and enjoyable face route ending beneath the intimidating roof. The remaining pitches are considerably harder (5.11 roof). Climb directly up the south facing buttress to the left of the drop zone. Ends at the anchors beneath the enormous roof. Descent: single rope rappel from fixed anchors.

3 out of 5 stars nice - did P1

first time up this, P1 is a nice warm up. lots of variations.

Aren't tons of gear in the first 15 feet but the climbing is easy.

P2 outta my league :)

3 out of 5 stars w/ Daniel & Jenny

Didn't find any good gear for the bottom ~15' or so, then mostly small cams & nuts, eventually some larger gear higher up. Had a hold move on me unexpectedly, even called "take" once... haven't been climbing much lately. Not a bad pitch to finish the day on.

2 out of 5 stars An okay route

Lead this route with the intention of setting up a top-rope for some beginning climbers. Nice bolted belay station, but otherwise unremarkable.
