4 out of 5 stars thin thinner thinnest

Quite thin at the top. I was dead tired when I did this climb. It felt hard all the way up.

4 out of 5 stars Be tall

I'm 6'1 and the final tough move off the thin face near the top was greatly eased by my height--was able to tiptoe off a nice little edge and grab the nice handhold about 7.5 feet above it with the tips of my fingers. Most people have to commit to nothing hand-and-footholds here in order to reach it. Of course, my height and size worked against me in clearing the alcove halfway up, so don't hate.

5 out of 5 stars Super nice thin climb

This climb is really fun. The move out of the alcove was fine, it got really very thin near the top. Sent it clean.
