Just climbed this 8/27/2011. It is loose and tricky routefinding. It was wet with a lot of slippery lichen. Skirting down South and around would be pretty tough to do. Even though we did not use a rope (not sure it would help?), I would not rate this a Class 3 (Roach?). Time consuming, tedious and fairly serious.
