4 out of 5 stars Sphinxter

wet and a little slippery but still good. Only need small gear. All trad to chain anchors.

5 out of 5 stars As fun as Mosquito!

Climbed when wet, scary. Nicely protected only if you have some nuts and cams.

5 out of 5 stars Easy after Mosquito

Nice crimpy holds. Some gymnastics required at the beginning, but from there, it is nice going.

4 out of 5 stars High step & rock on!

Lots of balance-y face moves on bulges and ledges - makes a nice complement to the lovely crack climbs in the area. We topped it after climbing Mosquito & Phlemish Dance. Easier than it looks, but it is a bit tricky.
