5 out of 5 stars Incredibly high quality

Admittedly, this route looks like all the others at first. It is only when you hop on that you can see and feel the perfect holds, challenging, thoughtful moves, and excellent position. A real classic that I would have led if it weren't pissing rain. Nice lead Will!
