This is a very fun route with a fairly good quality rock. The dihedral is clean, kinda blocky and provides lots of features. The route is a great beginner route to work on steaming, face climbing, and a little crack too. If there is a crux, it's clipping the anchors. In regards to the description [Erik]... "perched platform" seems overly descriptive, it's a rounded block at best. Maybe better described as the far lefthand corner, dihedral or open book. Whatever the description, people will find it and it's worth doing. Jan 16, 2018
