Comments: I thought this climb was pretty awesome. Make sure you go left at the tree and don't place anything to the right after you pass it. Felt like I was dragging a Volkswagen up with me through the crux. Also, people, keep checking those pins! I clipped one on this route only to have it pull out when I gave the draw a little tug.

Comments: If you like climbing perfect hand crack pitch 2 will throw a big smile on your face.

Comments: For those worried about the P3 traverse, before committing into it you can get a shallow but decent .75 slotted in the horizontal where your feet end up traversing. It is a very reachy placement but would protect you almost entirely from the swing. Once under the notch there are bomber nuts to be had.

P2 may be my new favorite pitch of 5.4 in the gunks.

Comments: Does anybody know the rating if you follow the ramp all the way right from the pitch 3 belay to a few pins, up to a small ledge, step left and move up the face to a corner with some old webbing and cord threaded through a pinch? It felt..... strenuous. Seemed like a variation worth mentioning, as it provided great exposure and very interesting moves.
