Did this climb in June 2013. This is a nice route, well protected and fun. The rock here is beautiful - lots of nice little nubbins, waves, etc. for footholds and handholds. Just a nice fun climb.
This entire crag is really a nice place to climb. Very quiet there - nice clean rock for most all of the climbs. A few spots/climbs were wet - so we just avoided those and did others. Good bolts and bolted rap anchors as well.
Note: Is a little wet and muddy on the hike in which is a easy hike per se - but you def want at least ankle high hiking boots or muck boots - esp if after we have had a lot of rainfall. This place tends to get every wet and 'swampy' on the approach esp if after a lot of rain as we have had recently. Much of the crag is shaded as well, until at least 3-4 PM, so it's cool and shady there. Def bring bug repellant as well!
The hike is an actual 40 min hike in and out, but a easy hike and not too strenuous. As in many areas these days I highly recommend DEET repellant for bugs as well as ticks. We did not see any ticks per se - but the risk of them is everywhere now.
