4 out of 5 stars Sharp Climb

The bolts seem really solid on this climb but be careful when you grab the holds because some are real chossy. Also be ready to do a lot of boulder hopping to get up to Fear Rock. I agree with the above comment about the 5.7. The first move is very tricky and 5.9 for sure. I recommend clipping the first bolt before starting if you want to avoid an ugly fall.

4 out of 5 stars More fun than I expected

The granite I'm use to climbing doesn't have holds like this. It was real fun. The start is tricky but made it exciting; it's probably the only 5.9 part of the climb. After the start it's probably a 5.7b climb. At the top there is one hanger on a bolt, the other bolt that's missing its hanger. There is a bolder to sling but it's pretty far back, take a lot of slings, or you can place a stopper in a crack up there and use less sling, or do both for safety. We top roped it after climbing Brown Sugar. You could scramble up to top rope.
