A 100 foot classic with about three or four 11d cruxes, and one 12a crux.

Great stone, great view, just all around great.

This route is just right of Stooner's Highway.

This is a Tod Anderson and Tom Hanson classic - a turn of phrase that I am growing weary of kicking about. After they had dragged enough drills up the hill and enough bodies to hold them, there was just not enough juice left to fill out this sector of the wall remaining in mortal man. So the Drill Meisters did it all alone, raved to a deaf auidence until the crew got their act together and checked out the damage. Just do it. This is gorgeous climbing on a gorgeous wall.
