There is a good mix of climbing technique and climbing styles you encounter on this moderate sport climb. Hone your crimpy slab technique, arete climbing, vertical face, and mini-roof styling in one run. I really enjoyed getting onto this 5.9+ for that reason alone. Watch out for Rattlesnakes on the approach and near the walls if you're going during the warm months. . They mostly stayed away from us.
