Second Second ascent by: cporter on 2010-04-26 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Fun

Great climb. The crux comes between the first and second bolt and then just after the second. It gets easy towards the top.

4 out of 5 stars Hard at the bottom

Some sustained moves at the start, fin and sloppy. Cool route overall. I would agree more with 5.11a rating.

3 out of 5 stars Good movement

I think this route has quality movement. Although the natural tendency for this line makes you feel like you should be wandering right. Bolts on on face keep you heading in the right direction. 5.11 is a good rating and consistent with many other controlled face climbs at the grade in Josh.
