3 out of 5 stars Not your average Forks route

Felt more like sport climbing on gear. A lot of face moves on thinner gear, seems like an odd choice to be the first route done here...

4 out of 5 stars an everything route.

This is great-thin/balance/stemming with good pro, then perfect jams to finish up on. So a lot of variance. You can use a wide array of sizes (as I discovered).

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Bomber thin nuts just above the roof down low, and you can keep the gear pretty close. Plus, the thin cracks section widens in a couple places into finger-size cam placements. Up higher when the crack sweeps back right yer in #2 camalot heaven!
