This is a great route if you like mixed climbing. Bring a hand full of small cams (green and yellow alien) and small to medium nuts. I replaced one of the two pins in the corner under the roof in 2014?
Double ropes to rapple is the best way down...I believe there is an anchor on one of the larger trees at the top. Jan 1, 2017
