still a fun route. Would be a fairly foolproof solo.

3 out of 5 stars Short, but fun in the sun

Short 10c section (and short route overall) but gets nice sun in the winter. I never did use (or notice) the crimps left of the crux - but didn't need them - the hand jams are just that solid higher as one passes the crux. Definitely harder than the crux on Tinker Toys (10b) I would say. A couple BD #2s or #3s are good for building the anchor on top - or you can make a good one further back with smaller stuff (as I did) - but then need to extend the anchor to avoid rope drag belaying the second.
