3 out of 5 stars Finally....

Redpointed this one. Took three tries. Crux is definitely the last bolt to the finish.

3 out of 5 stars Tried again...

... and still can't clean it a year later. Clipping the 4th bolt is problematic - you have to traverse a horizontal crack below the bolt and if you try to clip from that crack you'll come off, so you have to finish the traverse and then clip from a right hand layback at the same height as the clip. Stiff finish unless you find the magic pockets. I'd rate it a 10a because of the technical nature of the finish.

3 out of 5 stars Nice route

I enjoyed it, but it seemed stiffer than some of the 5.10a/b s that I've been working. Too short to be pumpy but technically challenging. Of course, I am relatively new to climbing so perhaps it really is 5.9 difficulty:)
