Comments: The correct route is to go up right side of the piece, and then traverse back left. It's not the direct neither. It's further left of the corner.

Comments: Pitch 1 is ok, nothing to write home about. Where is the belay on pitch 1? Right above the roof?

Comments: An excellent climb! Crux is the roof, bring some small cams. Protect your follower after the crux, otherwise, it's a swing into air.

Comments: Pitch 1 is not the same as before the rock fall. A lot of loose pebble and rocks on each of the ledges. Pros and moves are slightly more difficult. Not for a new 5.4 leader.
Pitch 2, the route finding is easy if you remember to stay below the pins. Just keep traverse right and follow the natural line.

Comments: I think P1 is actually 5.5. P2 is the money pitch. I feel like P1 is just another typical corner climb, not very special. Arch P1 to Wrist P2 is much better climb.

Comments: The route is short, prolly not worth it compare to Rhododendron. Link up with P2 and P3 of Northern Pillar is more fun.

Comments: Excellent climb. P1 is steeper than expected, but still 5.5. And protections are there when you need them. P2 is the money pitch, a very fun traverse. Leader should protect the second, if second falls on traverse, you might have to lower the second to ledge and reclimb.

Comments: The crux is the overhang start sequence, the low angle slab 15 ft up is fun as well. I don't know if P2 is worth doing, if you link both together, then maybe.

Comments: P1 is the worth doing, don't remember P2 much other than some dirty rocks. My follower backed off twice on the P1's airy exit. Definitely interesting, bring a big cam. I don't remember which one I used, maybe BD #4?

Comments: I still can't find the original route (5.3) which is supposed to go diagonally across the face. I was in a hurry so I wasn't paying close attention, but it seems there are no protection on the face. I went up the 5.4 route which is go up the corner and then traverse left. If someone has a nice big photo of original route, please let me know.

Comments: Good hard climb for beginners. If using bolts up top, be aware that when climbing this face, a fall will swing you quite a bit.
