I liked it but I love chimneys. Lots of scrambling and route finding. Looks intimidating from the base but is easy. Cool heuco to belay in with graffiti from 1900

Fun climb and fairly easy to protect. Watch rope drag. It's easy to setup a secure belay from the heuco. I didn't see any graffiti but I forgot to look closely. It's a bit of work getting down from Auxier Ridge to the foot of the climb. Plan to spend a lot of time on the approach if you park at the Auxier Ridge parking area!
