this route is sweet. I take all the trad noobs there and then watch them thrash. You almost need a headlamp for it. Parts are more like caving then climbing. sweet route

some spelunking is required unless you want to attempt the fearless .10C X variation on the Face, looks better from below, fun route, watch out for wood rats, that cave is too purty to be empty all the time

We stayed outside the cave, which may have been 5.9, and it protects pretty well that way.
