5 out of 5 stars sketch

until the third clip is sketchy!! probably the longest run-out i've ever seen, if you fall, you'll bottom out, so don't lead unless you know you can pretty much flash it. or you can top rope TO the third bolt, and lead the rest.
this climb is very fun if you're looking for something slightly overhung with BIG holds

5 out of 5 stars Sweet, tough climb

Good handholds all over the place but its a huge overhang and anything less would be ridiculous. Gets pretty pumpy by the end.

4 out of 5 stars Stellar, Steep Climbing

Can use 2 medium small cams to protect the two long stretches between bolts. Definitely ignore the last bolt up and left. Super fun.

3 out of 5 stars Juggy

Only one tough move at the 5th bolt. The rest isn't too bad, just fight the pump. Bring a .75 camalot and a sling to protect the gap between the anchors and the last bolt.

5 out of 5 stars Pump it up!

I wish I could red point this someday! After a full day of climbing, my arms couldn't function. If you ended everyday with this climb your endurance would be off the chart!
