very sandy in spots and loose as well............Belayer may want a helmet.
Sco Bro said on December 20th, 2006
Zero start. I would not recommend this climb to anyone. Both the climber and belayer need to exercise caution due to the poor rock quality. I hit Stewy in the head with a piece of “rock,” fortunately the rock quality is so poor that it disintegrated upon impact.

Sorry, it should be “zero stars” not “zero start.” Derrrr.
