4 out of 5 stars Christmas gift

Gear beta: Bring a #4 or #5 to slot in just after the crux, it is a mental life saver. The bigger the gear, the sooner it can be placed. I would agree with a PG13 rating as the gear is tricky and needs to be bomber as the crux moves are non-trivial, and it's really not over after that, the climb keeps your attention for several moves. The movement is amazing and awkward at the same time.

5 out of 5 stars hard but amazingly good movement

Feb 22 2010 Update: Freaking sent this thing. Thought I was going to vomit and had to shake out for a while on the giant face holds up high. Awesome climb that protects and climbs beautifully.


Jan 31 2010 Update: Tried this on lead and made it up to the transition back onto the face before falling. Finished the climb but not so elegantly. Try to lead again asap!

Need to TR this once more before trying to lead it.

4 out of 5 stars Difficult lead for the grade

While there is a perfect keyhole small nut placement protecting the crux, blowing it before your next piece might land you on a boulder below. It's heady due to it's insecure nature, but if you can figure it out it's not terrible. Beta: Use the face holds above the roof on the right.
