[Hide Comment] Good climbing and worth doing. Watch out for the crotch flosser when you transition to the other formation. The rope will try to cut your nuts off if you fall. Feb 20, 2014

[Hide Comment] Pulled off a juggy undercling that is pretty useful for gaining the third bolt today. Almost hit my belayer. Be careful out there! Feb 27, 2020

[Hide Comment] extend on the last bolt on the boulder before the step across to avoid an unfortunate genital injury. committing to the step across was intense, leads to easier and clean, crisp climbing above. May 30, 2023
[Hide Comment] Look on the right on the arete for the first couple of bolts, really good right hands there. The step across felt fine for me but might be scarier for a shorter person. I was able to reach the good hands and thought feet were awesome there. Nov 9, 2023
