If Green Eggs and Ham only get one star each why does this get two?

Fun and easy route if you use the jugs on the arete. The belay / rap tree is dead, you may want to back it up on the rhodos

i wanted to rag on scott for even putting this up, but i was pleasantly surprised, much more deserving of 2 stars than many of the crappy sport climbs that abound at the gorge. still it could be longer.

Belay/rap tree is dead, but you can build an anchor, bring up the second and walk to the left (facing the cliff wall) and rappel from a stout live tree.
