5 out of 5 stars Finally

It took me a long time to figure out how to rest on ring locks(read > 1 yr)... It was dirty from monsoons and the crux didn't feel as hard as the bottom .5 section. This is an awesome climb and I'm looking forward to getting on it again.

4 out of 5 stars Hard

I thought I would be ok with my hand size, but I was wrong! It is .5 to tight .75 size for most of the way, including the two crux sections. Finally eases up for the last 15 feet or so.

5 out of 5 stars Has anyone ever climbed Scarface in Indian Creek?

Because this is its twin. Beautiful line that is sustained at the thin hands size. Two spots where I was sure I was going to pop off, so it would be fair to say two crux sections. If you have a handful of 75's and 1's go get it.

5 out of 5 stars _

Awesome thin hands 3 #1 camelots, 3 #0.75 camelots, then singles in everything smaller. Maybe 1 #2. #6 if you want to protect the offwidth beginning (not a bad idea)
