4 out of 5 stars Great moves

This was the second route we climbed at Fronton. Short but very fun, with some really fun movement including a free standing pillar handhold that is like grabbing a jail bar, and a neat undercling move at the crux. Fun little line worth climbing for sure! Stainless bolts were in good condition as of Dec 2015.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

This aptly named route seems to be created from ancient black coral and features a leviathin resembling rough black skin embued with white barnacles. It had me feeling as though I was actually climbing over the belly of the beast. It is a short but sweet route, which I note can be topped, with one nice move out of an underhanging position. But other than that pretty much cake.
