the start is super easy and progresses to a better climb. Beware of the dead tree at the start as it could pose a slight problem if one should fall upon it's broken branch... There is some fun stemming,edging and face work on this one...Not a true "Crack" per Jtree style... Wide, flairing, with an occassional finger/small hand jam. Deffinatly worth doing if you are planning on doing the others on AFPA formation...
Strickly trad on this one. Small to medium rack... Many possibilities for setting an anchor on top... Especially in the medium range...
If by chance you plan to TR the route, real long static line would be very usefull...

Placement is thin in some areas so be aware of that. I followed so I thought this was super super fun. Stem moves, with some somewhat offwidth chimney moves just awhole lot to offer on this climb.

The climbing is decent but protection is a bit sparse and sketchy in places. Due to the tiered nature of the route almost any leader fall would be bad. You could make a case for an R rating on this one.

Good route with really nice stemming work. Pro is tricky and not always the best, as noted before. Note if setting this up for TR, a 60m will only reach if you walk a few meters up the initial groove to start the belay.
