As the description suggests, the rock quality is poor and the rout is extremely sandy. However, the moves higher up are fun and it is a committed climb for a new trad leader.

Good pro and fun movements but quite sandy. I didn't find that much choss, though. The rock was mostly good quality. It's just sandy and the top out is basically a beach.

Some would say the dirt makes it worse but I got some perverse enjoyment from the need to brush sand off of footholds before using them.
