This is a very aesthetic place to be. Casual route, as advertised. Be very careful with rope placement on the rap, as the rap station is not ideally located for pulling lines. We were very careful and still got a core shot.

The webbing on the rap was is bad shape. We extended it to reach over the edge. We were able to get all the way to the ground with one double rope rap, and had no problem pulling them. Not the most "classic" of routes, but a fun diversion.
