freaking wierd, kind of amusing, but wierd, rope drag even with log slings. the crack isn't to wide, i protected using a #1,2, and 3 camalots

Probably the easiest climb in the Gorge. Dirty, fun and adventurous, just how I like them.

Fun adventure climb, though a little moist. Protected well with medium Camalots and I agree with the rope drag comment....it was significant. I used the anchors on Dragon's Mouth and managed a top rope set up on that route for some kids. I love Muir Valley!
