4 out of 5 stars Really amazing route

I thought it a bit hard at 10c, but it is super fun. In you face off the ground with some finger locks, then it eases up while you stem to the lie-back. The lie-back is not so bad but sticking the jug without feet is a move and then you can rest under the roof. I didn't find a graceful way to pull the roof; lots of shoulder scumming, but then you get a no hands sit-down rest. The final bulge felt hard and insecure to me. Then a few easier moves to the top.

5 out of 5 stars Maybe my favorite hard 10 at the New

So so good. Protects really well. A tough start, although not too bad if you finesse it, leads to great corner climbing. First crux comes as the crack moves right. Get an awkward no-hands rest under the roof, then fire the true crux to pull onto another awkward ledge. Fire the last thoughtful crux out of the v-slot to get to easier terrain.

4 out of 5 stars 1 fall

Feel once down low on onsite attempt. Started from the ground and fired it cleanly.
GREAT route.

5 out of 5 stars Wow, what a trip.

This route earns all four stars. I loved it all the way to the end. I was working hard. Very demanding throughout.
