This climb is totally awesome - worth the walk in there by itself! The crux is an excellent challenge, dazzling and memorable. The 5.10 finger/hands below are very quality as well. Cams to #2 (maybe 1 #3) and a #5 friend is nice for the wide crack at the top but not mandatory (there is smaller gear to be found as well).
