The first pitch of Columbia, which follows the obvious crack that goes up and then arches to the right.  The climb is really well protected, but watch out for the loose block I've highlighted in the photo.

I didn't find any issue with that block. yes it sounded slightly hollow and wasn't in there as solid as the rock around it but I felt comfortable climbing on it and placing gear above it. Oct 17, 2017
