Comments: Nasty approach, stellar climb, no snakes (April 6th). Next time, I'm taking gaiters and a plank to plow the man-eating shrubbery. Awesome rock, fantastic views, great pro, comfy belays - what more is there to ask for... oh yeah, fewer bushes. No fixed anchors.

P1 is a great warm up.
P2 is a bit of a sandbag with a pack on ~5.10a/b. (edit to emphasize it felt a little harder with a day-pack on)
P3 is as good as it gets.
P4/5 -it has to end somehow...

Descent - yeah, more b... more >>
