4 out of 5 stars Wild and fun

But not safe for a lead. 5.10 smears get you to the first bolt. A piece of gear might protect you from the talus, but it'd be pretty far away and to the side at that point. The bolt protects a lunge (for shorter folks anyway) to a sharp crimp and the start of some sustained, technical climbing. The moves are consistently thin and hard to the end, well above the second bolt. The addition of a couple of bolts to this would make it a quality, stout lead, but as it stands, it's destined for obscurity. Significantly harder than other 10.c's on the crag. 5.10d/11a R/X range in my book.
