4 out of 5 stars Thin Crux

The crux undercling has bad feet and worse hands. The first pitch is really fun for a 5.8-, the second pitch is really good as well. Fun climbing on face moves, liebacks, handjams, fingerlocks you name it. Lots of variety on the pitch with not too hard of climbing after the crux. An intermediate anchor splits the second pitch, why it is there I have no idea. The last pitch starts out really fun but quickly backs off to low angle junk. It would be a better route if an anchor was added to the top of the last pitch and one of the intermediate anchors on the second pitch were eliminated. You could even link the second and third pitches into one 200ft super pitch. It would allow you to rappel the route without skipping the last pitch as well, which isn't worth climbing unless you're planning on going to the top.
