3 out of 5 stars Easier than it looks

It was definitely an easier than it looks climb. Plenty of ledges to catch your breath on, and I only needed a single Big Bro #5 midway up. I didn't feel the 5.7 grade whatsoever. Felt more like a 5.3 when I was on it, but I know that by watching others top rope it after me, it was no 5.3, lol. So if you are good at arm bars, chimney moves, and feel comfortable getting in the chimney, is an easier climb.
