Make it past the second bolt, and the climbing gets a lot easier. Oct 15, 2008

Can easily stick clip the 2nd bolt. Climbing is tricky through the 3rd bolt, then maybe 5.7 to the anchors. The easy top section is quite fun; the harder lower moves are fun too if you can stick the footholds. Apr 17, 2015

If stand up on the terrace you can stick clip the third bolt and pull the crux on TR. If you're a giant wuss like me :) Sep 9, 2016

The top of this climb would be a three star 5.7. The bottom, if it were continuous, would be a three star 5.10. Together, it's kind of meh. Too much easy stuff for a 5.10, too hard of a start for a beginning climber. Aug 29, 2017

Fun start that will keep you on your toes (or likely, trying to find them). Eases significantly after the third or fourth bolt into a fun slab climb. Nov 13, 2017

5.10 on the bottom to the first 3 1/2 bolts, then becomes 5.8 climbing. Glad I stick clipped, it is thin at the bottom and greasy. Use arete for a move or two getting to 4th bolt. After 4th bolt awesome ledge to pull up on. Good hand/finger pockets and lots of classic nubbins. Turns to slab at the top. Permadraws on top. Jul 25, 2018
