Unfortunately I didn't spend much time climbing here. I was with my family, and the wife and one child were feeling kinda sick. In fact, we only got on one 5.7 (Glutton for Punishment). I wanted to do one more, but the sharp rock really spooked my kids. Here is the conversation between the 43-year-old father and his 17-year-old daughter as we pulled the rope:
Father: Gwen, wanna belay me on that 10a next to us?
Father: C'mon, it looks like a lot of fun.
Daughter: I don't know Dad, if you fall you'll get shredded...
Father: Oh, it's not so bad. Besides, I won't fall on a 10a.
Father (increasingly plaintive): C'mon Gwen, we drove all this way...
Daughter (refusing to feel guilty): No.
Hopefully I'll do more on a subsequent trip.

|This page would be a lot better if somebody added some more beta pictures to define where the bolt lines run. The guidebook is pretty out-of-date and incorrect, especially with the left side of the crag.|
