This climbs better than it looks. Face, lieback, a mini easy chimney/tube. Like some other routes at this cliff, I think this route could benefit from a rap station at the top.. in this case on the far right to keep down rope drag. This would solve 2 problems 1) belaying from the eroding dirt covered cliff edge creates erosion -- especially if your follower weights the rope as the rope basically gets forced to run through a dirt filled small gulley 2) the erosion basically rains down on the follower the whole time. I wonder if the other commenter here was experiencing dirt created by the belay of either a previous party or theirs.

Pro is bomber, moves are fun and the crux is physical. Interesting climbing getting established in the chimney. Would get 1 more star if the belay could be set up more pleasantly. Oct 25, 2017
Crack felt really slick inside, and lieback really difficult. Sorta dirty apart from that..definitely not ideal Oct 27, 2014
