    Looking for a moderate to warm up on? Keep looking.

    Leftmost on the wall, up a loose, unpleasant gully, a five bolt line staggers its way up the discontinuous face. Good incut holds can be fold throughout the climb, but a sense of distrust is felt when climbing, especially past one large moveable rock unfortunetly right smack in the best line.

    And did I mention the belay? Maybe from the very base of the gully is best - but then you can't see the climber; so up high in the gully past a scramble - yet then you almost belay above the climber. Hmmm. This climb is best climbed to complete the tic list or to enjoy a little space from the crowds around the corner. Then again the views of the Indian Peaks are best on this westerly face - yet so is the wind greatest here....ah, no matter. Sample with discretion.


    5 QDs to 2 cold shuts.

    I can't believe this is a 5.8. My guidebook says it is 5.5 and it felt 5.6 to me at the most. I rather enjoyed it.

    Mostly positive holds & climbing. Better and more interesting than it looks from the ground.
