|Very fun climb with a wide variety of climbing styles. Crack lie backs, mantles, stemming, smearing; it's got it all. The top is definitely the hardest part, I thought, but that could be bc I wasn't stemming enough. There is a huge ledge where some birds used to nest, or at least it appears that way, where the last crux starts. Hard core stemming up the last ten or so feet to the chains.|

Great climb. Difficult for the grade, especially if (like me), stemming and laybacks are not your strongest skills.
Don't give up at the top. It looks impossible, and it's certainly the most difficult part (especially because you're pumped by then).
