This is a great route for introducing beginners to multi-pitch climbing and exposure.
Pitches 1 and 2 are heavily bolted so being lots of quickdraws as well as trad gear. Pitch 3 end diagonally right from the anchor at the top of pitch 2. Do not climb straight up the black stone directly in fromt of pitch 2's belay ledge as it leads to lots of moss and lichen.
