These are great moderates and should not be overlooked if you're spending some days at Alabama Hills. The 5.7 "Panzarotti" is probably the best of the three climbs, but they're all worth doing. If you're new to leading/climbing I would avoid the start on "It's a Pisa Pie" if you can't clip the bolt first. Back East we call this a 'bouldery' start, which is to say NOT 5.6
