4 out of 5 stars Funky lead

the pro's not all as bad as its cracked up to be in the crux, but it definately is eye opening. The crack is flared enough that you need to take care in placing the #4(s)

overall fun route! and that crux will wake you up!!!

also in my oppinion think its much harder than 10a

we passed by some guys on TR who offered us a burn and i can say it seems a bit harder than 5.10a. the crux is very flaring making gear and jams interesting. great route :]

3 out of 5 stars wow

was not expecting that. my tipped out #3 had a sad face when it realized it should have been a 4 to protect the upper. the hardest 10a I have ever been on. slipped out a couple times downlow when my hands slid out. good stuff

Andrea's first .10a lead, w00t! This thing was good, but flaring and tricky. I should go back and lead this one some time.

3 out of 5 stars The hardest .10a in Tahoe

This route is definately not a warm up, it's a goal.
