5 out of 5 stars Fun route

Clipping the first bolt took some bouldery moves and a bit of finesse. The route felt really sustained and quite preplexing. Could have been that there was no sign of chalk on it and it was 28 degreese outside. Either way, I thought it was one of the better face climbs at the gorge.
