4 out of 5 stars Fun

not 12a tho at least with a reach. Felt 11+ on the flash. Hand jam rest in middle of route gets the pump meter back to zero before the top

3 out of 5 stars Dinner with Dracula

Powerful start to an endurance finish. Crux is clipping #2 unless you extend it. I really like the flow of the bottom if you stick clip 2 and avoid 1 entirely.

Soft 12a, I think the bottom is too powerful for 11d.

4 out of 5 stars step at the outset

A very nice line with some tough thin moves going past #2 to the horizontal crack above #3. A good rest is had before the finish.

As bolted, the protection requires a crux clip at #2. To eliminate the crux clip here, you can use a double quick draw combination or a 24 inch runner hung off #2. This permits the lead climber to clip the protection and head on to the horizontal crack system above #3 instead of stopping at the curving left two-finger pocket left of #2.


First run was 2012/10/28: I hung all over it and didn't much like it. Glad I got back on it today and found its flow for me.
