4 out of 5 stars nice

way harder than rating suggests. i had an easier time with the 8s and 9s in this area than this route. after the first bolt(which i suggest a stick clip for) it feels more like a 5.6

4 out of 5 stars Unknown Climb

This is a beautiful area. We climbed the Unknown Climb to the right of Ol Solo Meo, but that climb is not listed here. I lead it. It is listed as a 5.7+. It was harder than that for me, probably because I was super tired and super sore fingers don't work very well in the sloped pockets. The pockets make great feet though. I even went inverted on a traverse fall from above my protection.

4 out of 5 stars Good Fun!

Alot of good fun even at 38 degrees with the wind blowing. Rock was cold and hands were numb but still a great climb!
