Description:

This follows a crack/corner. There are pretty big dikes which you mantle. Some strectchy moves. Bolts at top of first pitch. Second pitch is short and real easy but little to no protection. I belive this route has been re-graded at 5.8, please correct me if I am wrong.

4 out of 5 stars thought the

moves off the ground were kind of hard, but then just pure fun the rest of the way up the first pitch. 2nd pitch is kind of meh, worth doing once, but probably wont do it again unless I need to get to the top for some reason.
