4 out of 5 stars Nice climb

The first 25' protects well with a #5 HB offset, a Blue black alien and a .75 Camalot but may be tricky for a 5.7 leader.

5 out of 5 stars Scary

There are only a small handful of placements, but route is pretty easy so you'd better be confident in you leading ability

Start is somewhat tricky to protect: small alien(s) will work. Don't fall as there is definite groundfall potential before and after these initial placements.
