Starts left of Tainted Love. Moves into a clean corner which gets more difficult as you go. Get psyched for the high crux with your last pro well below your feet.

5 out of 5 stars So much fun!

This corner gives you exactly what you need when you desperately need it. The crux for me came at the top when i stemmed hard and dropped my shoulder and arm chimney body scum style into the corner thinking i could rest like that. Started slowly sliding down then had to do the most desperate foot scums to correct my mistake. Amazing finger pockets when you need them and improbable crimps up high. I love routes that make you bust it over nuts cuz you have no other choice but to go. Maybe i just don't like thinking too hard. Its airy so go for it.

4 out of 5 stars chickened out

on my first try. The moves to the finish were quite heady with pro a ways below. When I approached it with full awareness of this, it didn't seem too bad.
