4 out of 5 stars almost!

almost onsighted this route. the beginning is what got me. had trouble with the first couple of moves and was fine after that. i wish i had lowered to say that i ACTUALLY redpointed the route but call it what ya wanna call it.
you never really have to fully utilize the crack cause there are plenty of face holds. keep your eyes open up top for good holds after the roof. feels a little harder than 10d

4 out of 5 stars HARD

Very cool climb, very sustained, seems a bit harder than 10d. Pretty much a thin finger crack climb most of the way. Usual boulder problem start. Definitely need to place a piece to prevent ground fall. This is the first route after you descend from a giant boulder if you're coming from the designated walk-up.

3 out of 5 stars The American

Nice climb. I sweated and cussed my way up this one the first try and fell just above the roof. It was a little cooler when I got back on, and it was no problem.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Good climb. You can run it out to third bolt, risking certain ground fall, or plug in a piece. Sustained last half of climb with good feet. -.10c/d?
