The 'long' trad classic of Pine Creek, with lots of hand cracks and variety. A bit of crumbly and/or hollow rock in several spots (including the crux).
See Marty Lewis guide. Two raps with two 60m ropes just barely make it down (watch rope ends!). The second rap comes down right in the middle of the sport routes on the Ministry wall, and the creek noise makes it hard to hear, so make sure you yell "Rope!" very loudly and give folks below a bit of time to react before you pummel them with the ends of two 60m ropes dropped from 190' above!
