Description

This route has two pitches of crack climbing, very near the right end of the rock. Pitch 1 (5.6) has two well-protected crux sections: a short hand crack and a fingertip lieback. Pitch 2 is easy (4th class). This climb is almost always in the shade.

Hmmm - Not what I usually expect for a 5.6 (i.e. not a romp, so don't be a first time 5.6 leader). Jun 3, 2013

The crux crack required a pinky finger lock for me to feel secure. Once I figured that out the rest was easy. A very fun climb for someone only climbing for a few months (me). Sep 7, 2010

The first 30' or so are fun but it probably becomes 5.3 for next 60', and 4th/easy 5th. A good route for a new leader or someone new to climbing but otherwise not very interesting. You can make it to the top with a 70m rope. Jul 22, 2007

The first pitch has a very short crux sequence up the shallow right facing corner. The 2nd pitch has no cracks until the 4th class finish. Jul 1, 2007
