Overview
This is many climber's introduction to hard aid. The climbing is difficult and sustained but never too dangerous. It is mostly on thin, discontinuous features that are connected with very few rivets. Loose rock abounds, and usually one party each year will pull and "surf" a small block. The climbing is more difficult than the Pacific Ocean Wall but slightly easier than Lost in America.
