4 out of 5 stars Great climb after a not so fun start

The upper section is excellent, just look for the feet and rests. They are all there. Bottom is awkward and unappealing.

4 out of 5 stars Good stuff

Really fun crack climb with a hint of chimney at the beginning. As with any arching corner crack, a mistake at the crux will give you a free sideways body slam into the wall so take your time and use the mental image as motivation.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Nice crack climb, reminds me of T-Wall. It's important to use good footwork and keep balanced to avoid a pendulum fall. I'm not ready to lead this yet.
