Comments: Climbed today with near perfect conditions. It was recommended to start on Where Vultures Dare for pitch 1, then the 2nd pitch of Sun & Steel, 3rd pitch Beer Mule and the 4th pitch (last pitch) of Where Vultures Dare. Overall, this was an outstanding climb. Rock was great, protection was good, and bolts are placed in the right spots. We had the entire wall to ourselves.
