Comments: Awesome route! The 2nd pitch is NOT 50m, and calling it a dihedral is a stretch at best. It's a flake... Definitely recommend simul-rapping, we barely made it to one of the rap stations with a 70 while simul-rapping (I think it was the 4th).

Comments: Third pitch is definitely the money pitch! It's also home to the most loose rock on the route, and some of the loose jugs probably affect the grade. You can rap the 2nd pitch, but you'll take a big swing to climber's left if you're not careful. We did it in about 3 hours, 2 weeks ago for my friend's first multi-pitch. Great route to top out to watch the sunset!

Comments: Love the climbing out here, great rock quality, and it's basically in a giant cave so it stays alot cooler than other areas in Austin.

Comments: Super easy route, and you can set up TR for Sweat if you don't feel like leading it.
