Description:

Start at the bulge by manteling and moving up a bulgy face with good pockets and edges. Crux of the climb is at the top, where you must mantel again. Right of Sappy Love Song.

3 out of 5 stars whoa!

liked the crux. not a hard move, but much harder than the rest of the route. Because of the big ledges all the way up you can get rests (if you need them) but i wouldnt want to fall onto one of them. This was the hardest 5.6 of the three i climbed that day.

4 out of 5 stars Good lead starter route

Did it twice, the bulge at the top was an interesting problem.

4 out of 5 stars Christmas Chocolate

Very fun route with many options for hands and feet. Easy, comfortable lead. Filled with no hands rests to warm up slowly on.
