5 out of 5 stars One of the best!

Wicked sustained, technical, and utterly amazing climbing. This thing requires creativity, finger strength, and endurance, and it one of the most sustained routes I've done for the grade in J-Tree. Bring about 5 draws, and 0 metolius to 2 camalot and a lot of mental stamina.
