Comments: This would be ultra-classic at any sport crag, fun throughout.

Comments: My quick summary would be the bottom crack is awkward and not much fun but then you pull onto a really nice face and then do some sweet arete moves back to some sweet face moves at the top. I think it's one of the better climbs (upper portion at least) on the wall but people seem to avoid it for some reason.

Comments: The start is very low angle so it's more about avoiding any loose stuff than the length to the first bolt.

Watch for some serious bird crap on the last few moves.

The second pitch is long, sustained and will be memorable. I think the guide book description about this being a "easy" pitch isn't quite correct, hardest 5.6 I've ever done. The last pitch requires a lot of hands/off hands sized gear, we couldn't find many placements for smaller gear. The jams are flaring and less th... more >>

Comments: A memorable climb, don't understimate the length of the first pitch, you can easily run out of gear so either bring a lot or space it out. A climb of the highest quality.

Lots of good features on the right hand side of the dihedral for the first half of the first pitch but it goes away the closer to the anchors you get and gets pumpy, no moves easier than 5.8 but none harder.
