Never been here, but I really want to. Secor's guide lists about 10 routes on this rock with the majority of them having some aid up to A4. The FAs were listed in the 80's mainly, so I'm curious to any potential hard free lines out here. Seems really cool. Also, if anyone knows the approach and camping beta, it would quite helpful to add. Thanks! Jun 28, 2017
