Comments: Just had a really experienced friend have a red alien pull on this too. Made for a frighteningly long fall close to the block.

Comments: Before the roof seemed like the hardest part for me. I ended up slinging a chockstone before moving right.

The roof itself seemed so well protected. Phew... Scary looking up the crack though and seeing all those loose looking rocks in the crack above the roof.

Comments: Hi, Any thoughts on how quickly Rose Ledge dries? After a rain, would it be dry to lead the climbs the next day?

We are looking at climbing Sunday, and Saturday is a 90% chance. Any thoughts would be great.

Comments: This route looks like fun. Do you remember what the trad part of pitch 1 is rated? I lead sport to mid 10s, but only lead trad to about 8+.

Comments: Climbed this in a party of three and we all really enjoyed the 2nd pitch. Were suprised it was only a one-star climb in the books, we liked it more than many three-star climbs. Enjoy! The crux move is well protected, but tough.
