3 out of 5 stars Xanadu - 5.10a

I thought the climb was pretty smooth at the bottom, things only slightly improve higher up.

4 out of 5 stars Good fun.

Really enjoyed this route. Cruxes at the bottom and top are mostly about careful feet. Everything in between is technical and fun. Great route.

Done it several times before. Quite polished as most routes at the Lower Narrows. Fairly easy for the grade, but sustained. Probably looks easier than it is, as they all do here. Until you figure out your feet are on wet glass, then you take them all a bit more serious.

I climbed this climb as the last climb of the day. My feet were tired. I struggled with it as this climb is all about trusting your feet. When I come back I am sure that I will send it.
