4 out of 5 stars King Kong

Fun, interesting movement low on the route. A knee bar was useful for clipping the third bolt and getting a little rest in.

4 out of 5 stars HCR Trip I

Pumpy. Good rest in the middle. I cackled with insane laughter when I stuck the ledge up top off the sidepull, thinking it was going to suck and instead was rewarded with a monster positive hold and 5.8 climbing to the anchors.

4 out of 5 stars King Kong

Generally good rock, but it felt like 1 or two flakes flexed down low. Pumpy.

4 out of 5 stars Great climbing

When I fell on this, it was the first time I had ever fallen on 5.11 at Horseshoe Canyon. This climb and I do not get along, and I still had some trouble with the crux on the redpoint. Great climb.
