5 out of 5 stars fun

solid crack. Best one on Discovery Wall IMO

I'd say 5.9 is appropriate grade for the lieback moves at the top. Solid finger slot are plentiful.

4 out of 5 stars yes

Great but too short. Crack gets thin toward the top - but face moves keep it under control. Cams are tough to place - medium nuts all the way

3 out of 5 stars great trad lead

Protects well, especially with small-medium nuts, the new book down grades it to a 5.9 but i still feel it is at least a 5.9+

4 out of 5 stars Good climb

Fun climb. Pumpy layback around the piton, interesting traverse finish, rest of the climb was easier (5.9).
