Steep, but the protection is so good and easy to place that you can bomb up it. Felt low in the grade.

Classic Pem's pumper, not the best choice for a warm up!!

Greased out of the crack at the crux. The rock seemed to get very greasy about 30 mins after we arived, as the sun left and the temperature dropped. Think it would have felt hard anyway.

Very greasy, even late in the day. Good climbing, but only for the last 40-50 feet.
