4 out of 5 stars Pretty good

As said below requires a variety of moves, make sure to extend when needed to minimize rope drag.

5 out of 5 stars Muy Bueno

Usually I don't record single pitch routes in my log, but this is a stellar 5.7 warm up, don't understand the lackadaisical ratings by others here. Route is sustained in its ability to thought provoke and requires an awesome variety of moves beginning to end with some very overhanging sections. A large selection of cams is necessary and a rack of small nuts; I used multiple small aliens and also some larger sizes up to #4 cam. Disregard the route poster's info on 2-rope rap--only one is required.
