We did the 5.6 variation yesterday - it was a lot of ... fun! (I thought) or ... yuk, loose! (Scott thought). The beginning pitch is definitely more on the PG than G side of things.
Some loose rock, yes, but lots of fun wandering back and forth between the corner and arete. One 60m will just get you down.

|Did the regular 1st pitch with my 12 yr old son. I thought it was a nice climb but maybe harder than 5.2 for a new leader. Nice face moves protected by aliens or C3s in pin scars then a great layback in the corner. Didn't notice much loose rock.|

|I went up the 5.6 variation on Saturday, June 6th. I love stem climbing and this was right up my ally. I did find that this route could use some cleaning and more traffic. It really is a terrific variation with lots of good pro through out. Traversing out to the top, I found a bit tricky, as some of the pro placements was very thin. Lot of sloppy holds, but covered in lichen, which for me, made it feel slippery. All in all would lead again. * since it's a bit dirty, more traffic, and cleaner would certainly warrant ** or even *** in my opinion.|
