Good fun climbing, continuous 5.9 once you get off the little starting ramp. Two bolt anchor at the top, one bolt has a rap ring. Nov 29, 2013

Starts down low in a pit and climbs up a ramp to reach a ledge and the start of the difficulties. The crux comes past the first bolt but stays continuous with interesting movement on mostly good edges. Sustained and difficult for the grade.

An easy downclimb exists down slabs to the climber's right. Jan 3, 2012
