This climb was INCREDIBLE fun!!! Mostly Granite Mountain 5.10/11- crack climbing to a tough sloping finger layback. The climb could use a little bit of cleaning because it isn't traveled too much. There are some grainy flakes on the right side approaching the crux section and some plants/grass after the crux (DOH!).

Highly, highly reccommended.
