4 out of 5 stars Good offwidth

Really sweet from start to finish. I liked the straight up part after the rainbow.

4 out of 5 stars Nice feature

Where the hell's the R rateing come into play here???
The route goes form thin hands to fists real quick. The first half is really easy, just awkward to place pro. You got a lot of options way in the back there for pro most of the way. Definately double up on 1"1/2 to 4" pieces. Your options for an anchor suck too. Place a directional to keep the rope from running over the crack and belay form the tree. Or set some directionals and belay from the bolts on Run for your Life. Fun lead, not too hard for the grade.
