4 out of 5 stars Crux start.

The first bolt is easily the crux. It's pretty burly for the next couple, pulling over the roof heads into more relaxed territory.

4 out of 5 stars Dude!

The beginning is pretty much a short bouldering problem, but after about the third bolt it gets better and onto thin finger ledges. Belay is difficult; bring a long sling for the tree.
