4 out of 5 stars Awkard

Fun route. Awkward, balancey stem part getting from the 2nd to 3rd bolt. Can bypass the stemming part by climbing the bulging face to the left of the 2nd and 3rd bolt line using a couple thin edges to pull the bulge. Past the 3rd bolt, the route is easier with the main issue being the sloping nature of the line over the big chimney which requires a little extra balance. Lead or top rope (without a directional in the 3rd or 4th bolts) falls around the crux can be dangerous.

Headwall is the best part.

4 out of 5 stars Interesting

Getting around the fin is fun. Lower part is also fun, I was able to did some kind of "head jam", as other climbers called it later, getting my upper body stuck in a hueco and sticking my legs out rectangular to the wall. Weird.

3 out of 5 stars interesting route

Really easy except for pulling over to the left after stemming. Straightforward face after that.

4 out of 5 stars Power Grid

Exposed on the top with a great view. 3rd bolt is the crux as its a blind clip. Solid 5.10 face for the second half, bring a triple length sling for your bleayer to anchor in at the first bolt.
