5 out of 5 stars great climb

got it on my second go. This is not R or 5.12. All the climbing at the grade is well protected. The 5.10 start is protectable with a nut placement. There are cam placements before the first bolt. However, the bolts are slightly spacious. The run out finish is 5.8-5.9. I placed one nut, a #1 camalot, a yellow alien, and one green alien (after the last bolt).

4 out of 5 stars Fantastic, but

Well, I managed this thing with hangs. Just giving a conservative estimate of the grade. Take green and yellow aliens. some 1/2 to 1 camalots and nuts. do 20 ft of 5.10 to the first gear. Plan on tough placements-- some semi blind, hard clips, and a big runout over some sharp areas at the top.
