enjoyed this route, but be careful protecting the traverse. The rock that boasts obvious placements mid traverse is sounding a bit hollow. move over a couple more feet for a solid nut.

Nice climb. Traverse fine - tho I am short. Upper section intimidating upon first sight but easy in reality. Lovely climb.

Fairly easy for the grade, but you have a choice of protecting the traverse and getting rope drag or doing most of the route gearless.
