4 out of 5 stars Appropriately named

The beginning is a lot like the first 5.8 variation Pitch on the Nutcracker in Yosemite Valley with it's steep, layback crack. Then typical ORG slabby face. Great climb. Reach into the crask to find a nice rail for a move or two. Two takes. Hope to do it clean next time.

4 out of 5 stars Good fun

I liked this route - it is strange clipping bolts beside a crack (I'm not complaning though). Fun!

4 out of 5 stars Good Route

This route has character, begins with juggy sustained lieback to an interesting face. Definitely not 5.8!
