Awesome wee climb. 1st pitch is fun and prob around grade IV. 2nd pitch is short. 2 hard moves, but amazing climbing. 3rd pitch still keeps giving and is maybe about VI, 6.

Climbed clean to the last move on third pitch (mantle shelf onto pillar) where I took a big whipper due to unconsolidated powder and ripping axes!
