Classic OW climbing. Would be even better if it got a little more traffic, as the top is kind of dirty. Also, hard for the grade!
Does not protect with cams unless you have Valley Giants; takes #3 and #4 big bros pretty well, though. I found a single #2 camalot placement in a horizontal on the right face.

|I got on this this weekend, I cleaned up the anchor, it now has two new pieces of webbing (3/17). if the next person up brings a new biner that be great but its solid now. I did want to say this though, the book says you can TR it, this is true, but its misleading. the anchor is 5' right of the crack, so you need 5' or so of something to redirect off a small bush over the crack. It is also slightly overhung, which makes TR'ing hard. Also,the travers is unprotect but its a 20' easy shuffle on a 1' ledge over there, my partner didn't want to do it so I actually lowered her off of Mailbox. If your going to lead it (which i plan on next time) be solid in your groveling, it will be a little sketchy. I think 2-3 6's will cover the bottom 1/3 if you don't mind them being completely tipped out, and then 4 big bro's for the top, at least 2., and watch the loose block at the top.|
