4 out of 5 stars steep

A really fun route. The difficult moves are protected but you are making 5.6/5.7 moves well above your gear. The guidebook is bogus in suggesting bringing gear to 2"
You will find nothing bigger than a yellow alien (.75") though offset micro nuts will be a bigger help. As good if not (dare I say) better than Fantasia. You can bail into Haystack effortlessly at almost any time if the climbing becomes too much for you. Get on it, move up and see what happens.

4 out of 5 stars Fun route

This route seemed to be a little more "serious" than fantasia, a set of small nuts and a few small cams will definitely take a little of the edge off. Although the climbing is straight forward and not that hard, you are definetly in the "No Fall" zone for most of the 3 pitches.
