This is an excellent climb with very continuous stemming. Sunny, sheltered, and warm. For full credit, start up the left side of the pedestal, instead of scrambling up the right side. Standard rack to #4, emphasizing finger-size gear; there's currently a cam (not ours) stuck just below the roof. The pitch is 110' long; a single 70 gets you to the ground, but a 60 should reach the top of the starting pedestal. One anchor bolt has a Fixe single ring, but the other just has a fixed locker; a nice public service would be to add a screw link, or better yet, remove the locker entirely (probably needs pliers) and replace it with a screw link and ring.
