Comments: Decent area to climb.. although if you decide to camp there plz stay off the route base.. kinda rude when you wanna climb there and people leave their crap eveywhere, theres plenty of other places to camp around here that are just as good

Comments: fun crack! would recommend for a beginner - intermediate climber.. i dunno if i would recommend a TR tho, you need gear 4+" in awkward crack..

i found what seemed to be a class 4 walkoff on the backside of this.. does anyone know of an easier way down?
