4 out of 5 stars Direct Start

I would rate the direct start at 5.11c, or V3. I have no idea where the 5.10a rating came from, because it's not.

4 out of 5 stars Great Exposure

Make sure to place a piece high and right before doing the mantle. I didn't and fell backwards about 20 feet. Got it 2nd try but it was definitely the crux for me. I also fell once at the bolt on pitch 3, got it 2nd try.

4 out of 5 stars PG13

Sustained 10d climbing all the way up with four distinct cruxes, some of them coming 10-15 above protection. Not quite R rated but close. The book says there is a .75 placement near one of the cruxes which does not exist. I used a green alien, yellow BD, green c3, one micro stopper and three quickdraws for the 100-120 feet of climbing. I would not want to fall on this one.

4 out of 5 stars Great climb

Fell at the crux. Super fun climbing. Upper crack bulges and can give you trouble if youre pumped.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

Great climb. The crux comes between the first and second bolt and then just after the second. It gets easy towards the top.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

The climb was nothing like I imagined from the ground. It looks like a flared crack but really it quite good.
