3 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Beginning of this route is REALLY hard. I was following some beta from others, but it didn't work very well for me. I think mostly because other climbers were 6 feet plus and their wing span is much bigger than mine. I avoid the best hold on the start, which threw me off balance and made me barndoor. So, I used the little crimpers and moved upwards from there. After falling off the start, I decided to give another tries. This was mistake. I was so pumped from falling off couple of the times and easier sections were really hard for me.
