Fun climb. Moves up to and over the mini roof make you think it's harder than it is. Good holds all the way. May 8, 2010

This climb, along with the 5.7 to the right, are missing all the hangers. Bolts and nuts are in place, but someone has removed all the hangers as of July 4th weekend 2011. Jul 5, 2011
The hangers have been replaced. Only saw one on the 5.7/8 to the right that had no hanger. Jul 9, 2013

Great little climb, going up the middle face you can either keep left with bolt or head right which was a bit easier, but it makes for difficult clips. Feb 23, 2014
