3 recorded ascents.

Climber Style FA Ascent Date Suggested Grade
John Gill Solo (Ground up) 1961


A truly remarkable ascent for it's time. It was worked from the ground up, without the benefit of climbing shoes or bouldering mats.

Royal Robbins Lead (Did not finish)

I considered my greatest failure to be my efforts on the thimble. I could see that even if I worked on it forever I would never achieve it.
