4 out of 5 stars Takes some strength

Best dws route I have climbed. Took me three attempts until I figured out what holds to use, as you have to try it from the start every time you fall. It's a little harder when wet, another climber let me use his dry chalkbag with lots of chalk which was very helpful.
