This might be the best 5.8 in the state. Excellent gear, exposure, some face climbing an committing moves. Highly recommended. Mar 2, 2009

Even though the description says up to #2, I think I placed a #3 somewhere.

Wish I had the balls to lead straight up and avoid the holds on the right during the crux... May 15, 2009

If leading, it's best to belay on the ledge just above the roof. That way you can see and (sometimes) hear your second. Aug 30, 2013

Fantastic climbing, and an excellent lead for aspiring 5.8 climbers. Forget the face -- climb the corner!

Belay or top-rope off the giant boulder on top -- I used a 30' sling. Jun 13, 2016
