Dirty, horrible choss pile. Climb this is you like foot ledges crumbing under your feet and chunks of rock falling toward your belayer. Don't climb this if you want to have a good time.

Rock quality is very poor, crack very dirty, lots of stuff breaking off so the grade is getting harder as time goes by. Best to have the belayer wear a helmet, and dust sheets wouldn't be amis either. Placements worked out OK, sort of kind of safe if you have a good selection large gear. I was filthy by the time I was done with it. Really no reason to climb this thing other than to put a top rope on Orange Crush - which has almost as poor rock quality

This is in the guidebook as "dipstick," noted as a 2-star climb. I think that's 3 more than it deserves. Sandy mess of a route, pulled down all kinds of sand and small rock on my belayer. Avoid.
