5 out of 5 stars Extremely wild bombay action!

Everything about this route was really fun... awesome face climbing for about two pitches.... until you begin to enter the amazing bombay roof part. Not gonna lie... some of the rock quality in this part was crumbly, but the gear was always plugged in a solid crack, you're just perched on a crumbly rock jutting out over the air before you commit to the wildness. Once committed it gets awesome... hand jams down and around a roof to another nicer but less of a rest perch then proceed up the exposed chimney lined with a perfect finger crack. the final move is amazing... and not gonna give it away. None of it is too hard, just super exciting and rewarding.

5 out of 5 stars crazy

Led the first pitch, it's awesome. Fell on the first 10b crux. Delicate face climbing for the 10c part. Really cool. Followed the second pitch. Really, Really wild!
