4 out of 5 stars Bigger Gear needed

This was an alright climb. It was also wet and that took away from the climb. I also found that there were a lot of holds outside of the "splitter". Not sure if it was a 5.9.... guess I may have more trad experience than the 5.9 HSC climber? It was fun though.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome

My first trad 9, was great fun, with the crux nicely protectable with a 3.5 friend. Good moves and pro throughout. A little wet at the time we did it, but lots of fun. I also cleaned the tree that was hanging over the anchors on this one. The root system is still there, but it's not in the way, and doesn't look like it'll come loose anytime soon.
