I liked P1. P2 was like floating up nothing through the crux which was fun but A. the line skipped the obvious weakness up and right through a thin crack so it was a bit contrived and B. it headed for a third bolt then abruptly angled left to the finish anchors when it would have been better to go straight up a nice crack to finish on newer anchors on the right or just keep going for the summit. Anyway, bring a few small cams to finish up a 5.8 crack for P2, it's sweet. Oct 8, 2014

From a quality point of view this route is highly underrated - it's a wonderful climb up a wide smooth swath of granite, the 1st pitch involves a great series of moves over an overlap then leftwards, all very exposed and worrying to gain a wandering slab thankfully up to a bolt belay. Second pitch seems holdless, but things seem to work out okay beween the sparse bolts, and a rhythm ensues. Highly recommended. Mar 4, 2006
