[Hide Comment] I was not a fan of the first few feet of this slab. Seemed a bit bare for the start of an easier route. The rest was ok and straightforward enough. May 10, 2011

[Hide Comment] Great for a rest day. DO NOT try doing both pitches in one pitch! You can clearly see all the burn marks from all the people that have, really takes away from the climb having 20 black burn marks on every hold. Nov 25, 2012

[Hide Comment] I talked to Rick and Liz about these climbs, apparently the ground has washed out 2-3 feet from when the were put up before the belay ledge was built. Thats why the start on the center climbs seem so much more difficult than the rest of the climb. Make sure your good and warmed up before the start. Oct 15, 2015
