3 recorded ascents, including 1 unsuccessful ascent.

Climber Style Ascent Date Suggested Grade
Pat Littlejohn Lead 25th Apr 1972
First ascent.

With 5 points of aid.

While this action departs from the purest traditions of a first ascent, in this case I believe it to have been in the best interests of the climb. No one could be gladder than I to emerge from the dark'n bad lower walls to a finish touched by the last rays of the sun. [1]
