4 out of 5 stars Very aesthetic climb...

Super delicate and technical climbing on a beautifully exposed face overlooking Lion's Head Bay. One thing about this route you have to pay attention to is that it zig-zags all over the place and doesn't exactly follow the bolt line perfectly. Around the 3rd bolt you have to traverse far to the left on the horizontal crack in order to bust up to the next system of rails otherwise the move feels about 5.13+ to go straight up to the next sloper rail. Some bolts may be loose and need tightening. Also best to pre-clip the second bolt as a fall there while clipping (a hard clip) would land you on a sharp tree stump!
