Glad to have the closures lifted a few days early this year. Headed out with my wife to finish the "Top 10" from Roach's guide. It seemed like this route isn't climbed a whole lot due to the healthy crop of lichen. The climbing was fun and sustained. The crux moves felt pretty thin for 5.5 but maybe it was just because I was 40ish feet above my last piece. This is a great route and deserves the top 10 rating.
Rappel beta: I extended the slings around the tunnel quite a bit to rap NW. Without the extension the rope has to be pulled around an edge of rock. The rope pulled like a dream and this is the way to go. It takes quite a bit of webbing (or trusting the old junk).
