Thin and continuous throughout with excellent quality rock - definitely the best route on the rock.

Great route with a tough crux section. Good luck figuring out how to get to the third bolt! Great climbing to the top from there on great rock. Out of the way location makes for a nice quiet day away from the crowds.

Stellar stone with a hard high step at the crux, didn't get the onsight. Felt hard for 11A

Quality line shining right up the middle of the crag. Great rock and movement up this thin face. Good stuff!
