4 out of 5 stars Good Route, Not much pro...

A good route if you dont want to do Skyline Traverse or the others over there. Take Kauffman-Cardon to some hangars, then traverse and do this. The pro is hard to find but doable. We mixed this up and did some other stuff. Started in on the 5.7 crack (which looked sweet BTW), then traversed out to the corner, then up, then right. I think its best to just kind of keep going. Pro is PG to R. The runout at the top is fairly long, but good holds keep you there.
