This Was my first ever outside route. I had never seen a crack nor been in a chimney. The crux of the first pitch (the only one I climbed.) was right at the beginning. It took me a little while to get going. I fell about 3 times during the crux. Once your in the chimney you kinda shimmy your way up to about half way and then the 5.9 feels more like 5.5 or 5.6 the rest of the way up. I toproped it my first time and came back three years later and led both pitches! Very enjoyable as a first climb. However the down side is about a 20-25 minute approach.
