Super-stellar route!

business is right off the ground in the first 20 feet to the first roof. Rest of the route is much easier.

Nice climb, somewhat of a commiting move on lead! I liked it....There are anchors about 10-15 ft right at the top of the crack. Make sure you mind rope drag if you use them.

IMO not the classic its made out to be. Greasy, sharp, and chossy at the crux. Not bad, but not great either.

I can appreciate the beauty of this climb. But, Damn... This thing is ridiculously hard for someone with bigger hands. Jamming is nearly Impossible in the crux and liebacking is worse. I find it more difficult than brontosaurus. But, hand size totally counts on this thing...
