3 out of 5 stars Hot as in Spicy

The gear in the chimney definitley leaves something to be desired. While trying to set a nut I broke a good size piece of rock off. Probably not 10+ more like 10b, but you should be leading 10+ to feel comfortable on it. I know I was spooked...

4 out of 5 stars Don't screw up before the roof

First 25' of flaring chimney with a very thin, shallow crack is heady and hard 2 pro !! Then it opens up to a beautiful hand crack at the roof. Look forward to getting a red point on this one! Its allot of FUN!
Took a fall at the roof and had to hang just above.
