4 out of 5 stars Fun warmup climb

Bold start, followed by plenty of bomber pro, for the most part, a bit run out up top but not a problem as the grade eases as it get's run out. Good fun warm up.

4 out of 5 stars Stellar, Tricky, Fun

Highball start leads to good pro on the flake. It is a little bit tricky at the crux, and super runout at the top, but the crux is short and the top is scrambly. All in all, a good, old (FA was in 1977!), route.

Small nuts and Cams up to BD #2.

3 out of 5 stars Diiiirty

Past the flake, the entire route is caked in moss. Very sketchy.
