Comments: Agree with Goran, climbing is great up to and across the tyrolean. The pitches afterwards are very time consuming so make sure you have plenty of time. Lots of exposed traversing, very fun, but keep your head screwed on tight as there is still LOTS of loose rock ready to be pulled off. Thought the last pitch of down-climbing was excellent, tricky and rewarding to finally get off the arete!

Comments: Descent is relatively straight forward once you find the faint climbers trail leading down to the rappel. Keep on down climbing the talus, you will eventually come to a ledge with a fixed nut and piton that you can rappel off of.

Comments: Loved the long approach! We climbed the rarely climbed off-width corner in lieu of the third pitch. very chossy with a difficult roof traverse. Would rather do the third pitch runout instead.

Comments: Awesome link-up, highly recommend. Last pitch doesnt have many bolts, 50-60 feet of runout climbing over easy terrain.

Comments: The approach feels long when its hot out and yes, bring wider gear, had to runout the top since I used it all below.

Comments: Awesome variation to the first pitch of Haystack. Highly recommend. Sustained and very fun! Should be the direct start to Haystack, imo.

Comments: Best climb at this crag. thin slab climbing to a moderate roof to an excellent roof, stay left over the bulge for best movement and finish on 15 ft. of 5.9 offwidth climbing. Cool!

Comments: As of August 30, 2014 the tree at the top of this climb is completely rotten and could easily be taken out with a swift kick. Has probably been struck by lightning multiple times. I would not recommend rappelling off of this thing. It would be great to get a set of bolts on top to make the climb more accessible. The lower off-width section is rad, bumped a #4 halfway and ran-out the rest. Suggesting an R rating for the 40 ft of unprotected chimney climbing to reach the top out.

Comments: Awesome climb up the crack, sustained and technical. However I am curious about the bolt placements being below the crack on the traverse.....
