On the first ascent, I placed a marginal RP at the awkward crux corner crack near the top of the corner and it pulled. I went zinging down a little ways and even skinned my knee. I fell onto a 00 c3. It held, fortunately. It was really exciting! I was rope soloing and pushing it a little. The rock quality here is really good and reminds me of Vedauwoo a bit. This climb is short and doesn't look like much but is stupendous up high. Sep 13, 2012
