4 out of 5 stars Interesting Lead

I've climbed this a few times, and often use it for a warm-up when at Metcalfe. I can't see this being more than a easy 5.7, maybe even a 5.6. The hardest part, by far, is cleaning the route after climbing it! Just keep going up and right. The original name was Serpentine.

3 out of 5 stars First Pitch

Climbed the first pitch. Great slab climb. Felt a little harder than 5.8 to me. Great climb!

4 out of 5 stars First pitch only

climbed first pitch only. fun technical slab, got a little wet on the third bolt i think, water drips from the second pitch after it rains. second pitch looked pretty fun but the third bolt is gone and i couldn't see the fourth from the anchors.
It looked like you could probably manage it in one pitch with a 70m, maybe make two raps down, could anyone confirm that?

5 out of 5 stars My first lead redpoint

Great route. Take your time to look for good foot holds and you're be flashing this in no time. The view from the top is awesome. You might want to stick clip the first bolt if you don't have long arms.

Felt more like 5.8+ (It might be because it was my first lead, who knows...)
