4 out of 5 stars MorningSide

Real chossy on the first pitch. Some hangars were missing on the first and second pitches as well.

4 out of 5 stars Morningside

A couple things worth noting:
1) Rock quality on first pitch sucks, the rest is good.
2) This is a bolted climb but certainly not a sport climb. Expect some long runouts.
3) The cruxes are short, but if you cannot lead 5.9 I would exercise caution. The crux on P2 is right above a big ledge.
4) You can rap the route with a 70m rope.

Good route but don't underestimate it.

4 out of 5 stars Nice route

I enjoyed the route but the bolts are not exactly close together! Borderline run out in my opinion. Great rock texture on the slabs!

4 out of 5 stars Fun Route

Short approach, fairly solid rock, good belay stations. Great views but lots of traffic noise. Missed the 2nd belay station and ended up climbing up to the 3rd station.
