I want to like this climb because of the cool feature at the top and really the movement is smooth and interesting, despite the still crumbly rock, but the God-awful approach to set a TR absolutely ruins this. You're looking at a crappy 5.7 chimney on the way up that flares out on the way down. Just a stupid and dangerous way to set a toprope. I wish that would keep away the non-climbing riff raff, but the broken bottles up there tell me that still some yahoos get up there in flip flops and must break ankles on the way down. Just lead the thing to stay safer.
