5 out of 5 stars hell yes!

i LOVE this climb! it's a bit spicy, but the bolts are where you need them. all the moves are there, just gotta think ahead a bit. saw a chance for a cam in a pocket up in the top third section.

4 out of 5 stars Excellent Friction Climbing

Easy and straightforward approach walk.
First bolt is fairly high-up, but it is easy until there. The bolts are quite spaced out, so there is definitely some real exposure! But the falls would be clean and safe (it's a slab), and luckily there is a bolt just before the move when it gets harder.
Still, you have to significantly give up using your arms more and more as you're climbing, and use balanced and precision foot position.
Excellent climb to make progress on friction climbing, but be rather comfortable on 5.8 before going there, or you'll be uncomfortable in the runout part before the anchor (yet again, it's slab sport climbing, so you may take a somewhat long fall, but it is safe).

4 out of 5 stars Hidden hold above 5th bolt

double-check everything. I nearly tried to rappel with one side of the rope.

For a TR anchor, I tied overhands a handbreadth apart on a long sling, hung it from 2 bolts, and clipped a 'biner to each strand between the knots; an improvised equalette.
