5 out of 5 stars Best 5.9 I've ever been on

I lead the route but had to take to figure out the tricky crux. Once you're past the crux it's smooth sailing to the anchors. This is a fantastic route and a must-do for anyone projecting 5.9/10s. As others have said, the view from the top is amazing.

5 out of 5 stars Super Fun

My climbing partner lead and set up the top rope for me. This was super fun. The view is awesome. You HAVE to stop, turn around and look when you top out. I was pretty much at the limit of my ability here (which made it fun). I want to go back and lead it. Leading this in on my "must do" list now.

For my buddy and I there were two cruxy sections. If I had mantle skills it would probably only be one. Something to work on.

Route beta is very correct.
