4 out of 5 stars No cake walk

We top roped this after leading Quaker Oats, and just put in one directional quickdraw about half way down. The start is very thin. We cheated and used the adjascent boulder for help. The whole climb is so thin and long I needed to try to use my outside edges when I could to give my toes a rest. There is a section at the top for like 5-6 moves where there weren't even any holds, it was just friction climbing. It was pretty sustained for the first 3/4, so it was quite a work out, but fun. Climbed it clean, except the start.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Put in a directional and top roped it off Quaker Oats anchor. All these routes here are quite runout and easily top roped after leading QO.
