Stellar. One of the best routes I've climbed in Miller Fork and the best view I've seen there. Top it out and enjoy.

There is a second anchor on top of the the pillar if you are at the anchor on one of the 3 sport routes and want to get some soul on up op.

Neat feature. Maybe a long draw at the steep part would be helpful. Thought the arete was a bit forced. The route to the right seemed better.
