3 out of 5 stars Good

I drew the short straw and ended up following this really good route, we had a #5, #6, #12 so it really wasn't the full on x status. The climbing isn't too hard but you definitely need to conserved your energy and be efficient at squeeze chimney. Can hardly wait to lead it

4 out of 5 stars Serious OW

Pretty well defined crux. The rest is just physical. I had #9 and #12 VGs and also clipped a bolt on the adjacent face climb. So I was never facing groundfall. Never even saw or clipped the "hidden piton".

4 out of 5 stars The Fatty Merchant

Feels harder than the grade. Very sustained. The Piton needs replaced. 12" pro would be nice. A #6 #5 and a set of nuts protects the protectable just fine. I cheated, I used a #12 Valley Giant. Still 50 Feet till I could use it and still very much an R++ route.
