5 out of 5 stars sport climb/trad climb

Redpointed this one using the bolts. Didn't feel good about it though after my boyfriend led it on gear and another friend almost onsighted it on gear. Beautiful crack, so fun to climb.

5 out of 5 stars Amazing!

Lead this with the bolts and made it to the top... ok cool... not satisfied although stoked. Tried it again using just natural pro and fell at the final crux section and pulled a yellow alien to upside down 20 footer (didn't inspect the gear well).... finished it up. Why is this bolted? and can't wait to try it on gear again! Spectacular! Edit: 5/1/10 sent on gear only placed on lead. Stellar!
