4 out of 5 stars the holds are there!

Short tech section down low and then steepish hidden jugs all the way to the top.

5 out of 5 stars a committing pumpfest

Crux is a tough sequence of moves after the first bolt (which is quite high). Establish under the roof then pop up for the crystals and move fast. The rest is pumpy but the holds are huge and just where you need them.

4 out of 5 stars one of sauratown's best 10's

Runnout to first bolt (~20-30 ft), crux at first bolt, steep pumpy with big holds the rest of the way. Hung on lead and then TR'ed

3 out of 5 stars shock the monkey

Nice long overhanging route. Guaranteed to pump the new leader. Do yourself a favor and place a piece before the first bolt.
