This line is a tad chossy. Both my partner and I pulled off some pretty good chunks on each of our ascents. Still a great climb.

Agreed on the Choss. There is some very fun thin edging at the top, but its very easy and at times necessary to pull on holds that look like they're held in by dirt and moss.

Led this at the end of 2015 and didn't find the route to be chossy. Great face climbing and edging.

This is a good climb. If it cleans up more it could become a great climb. Two different types of climbing put into one long line, with a thoughtful thin crux to top things off. It is still chossy and a little mossy through the first half. I pulled off a couple small pieces. But it wasn't bad, and my guess is it's been cleaning up slowly since the above comments 2 years ago. With close attention you can avoid pulling on anything that would come off.
