3 out of 5 stars Technical 5.9

Fun slow movement. Be patient and find good body position. A little reachy at the top if you are short.

3 out of 5 stars you can tell I'm a noob when...

I miss the last gear placement, and so erase any possibility of NOT decking if I fall within a few feet of the bolt. Place gear in the obvious placements, don't expect another spot to show up. Runout, but helped me push some mental limits. Kinda fun.

4 out of 5 stars Fun route

This is a great route, starts as slab and then to face climbing. Only 2 bolts but this is plenty.

Excellent slab route. I had a blast on this one at the end of a day climbing on pumpy overhangs.
