Comments: Lots of hand size pieces on pitch 1 Burly, sustained lots of layback, deserves the +. Start of pitch 2 protect the traverse or set up your belay left on ledge. Sharp edges on some of this route. A great climb first pitch memorable.

Comments: First move protects with a 3 if you are nervous about the pointy rock. Abundant pro.

Comments: Decent climb. I used a 4 and a 3 for the last couple moves. Bolted rap anchors to the right. Next time I want to try the 5.8 to the right that shares same anchor. I agree with 5.7

Comments: Big gear helpful. Chimney section short I think 5.7 with adequate pro. Take big gear and walk it up the 5.8 offwidth early on second pitch. By big I mean threes, fours, maybe a five. First few moves on p1 are not protected.

Comments: 8+ Bring big gear I used a 4, 5 two 3s. Could be done without the 5. Ring anchors off to the right.

Comments: the Tunnel pitch is much harder than 5.3 to me I am 6 feet felt sustained 5.7+ happily I was following. Surprised to hear anybody getting pro, though I didn't really look myself.

Comments: Pitch 3 doesn't go directly up the crack. You step right 15-20 feet on a little ledge and finish the pitch by climbing a face with lots of horizontals. The guide seems to want you to "trend Right" but you actually go sharply right well below the overhang. We got corn-fused and set up an extra belay on the little ledge to figure things out. 5 pitches instead of 3-4 (...doh!). Great climb, good pro throughout.
