3 out of 5 stars This one is stout.

Whew...only my second lead of this grade and it was pretty tough. Finally took my first lead fall. Didn't expect the crux to be at the beginning- which was bouldery and difficult for a short person. The layback repeatedly seals shut and then opens back up to nice holds. Watch for loose blocks the whole way.

4 out of 5 stars serious fun

Every time the moves started to seem tough, I was presented with a perfect jug, great foothold, well placed bolt, or a nice ledge for a rest. Almost seemed easy for the grade?

4 out of 5 stars super fun

Bolt under first roof would have been a little scary to clip on lead, but the route is full of super fun technical moves.

4 out of 5 stars Quality

Both headlamps fell out of my pack as I sqeezed into a large crack to remove a cam on the first pitch. Had to be lowered from first pitch to find them. Why on earth did we buy a camoflage headlamp? Surprisingly they still functioned.

4 out of 5 stars Good Route

5.9 sport is unheard of in NC. Good route for a new leader like me.
