Great (Yum) if you like OW. Bad (Yuk) if you don't. Climb up the OW with chicken-wings, heal-toes, arm bars and the occasional chest-jam. Body size is a factor and larger folks may not get any rest and may really not like this climb. Top out on the obvious shelf and belay your partner up. There is a rap station above shared by Mailbox (5.8+).


Continue right past the huge inset with the classics Autumn and Rock wars From those climbs start watching for an angled wall facing you, and for the huge crack splitting it top-to-bottom. This is Yuk.


TR or lots of wide gear. I "lead" this on some tube chocks before large cams wand big-bros were around, but that was a VS/X rated ascent and even with wide cams, I am not sure how many you could lug up there and place...

Classic OW climbing. Would be even better if it got a little more traffic, as the top is kind of dirty. Also, hard for the grade!

Does not protect with cams unless you have Valley Giants; takes #3 and #4 big bros pretty well, though. I found a single #2 camalot placement in a horizontal on the right face.
