Comments: I liked the 2nd pitch (it is grassy with lichen). The first pitch is better and more cruxy in my opinion.

Comments: I did this one again this past Saturday (7/19/14). This is the 3rd time I've lead it and there is a very obvious 'open book' you can see from the ground.

Comments: Not sure why the negative comments, I thought the climb was great. I lead it yesterday and it was a bit wet, but still very enjoyable. Good pro if you look for it. No drag with shoulder length runners and maybe a long one at the arete.
The very beginning of P1 is run out before your first piece of pro, but was good climbing. On P2 at the top I think I went off route and went straight up through a cracked roof with an old pin/ring. Fun, but I think that I didn't put enough slings there and had s... more >>
