5 out of 5 stars Surrealistic indeed

I red point after only my second attempt. What a great P1 this was. I used 4 pieces on the wide crack with double length runners to have the rope go straight up with zero drag. The roof protects really well and once you trust your jams it's all over if you get your feet on the knob. Rest some and a few moves later it will be in the bag. It feels true to the rating.

4 out of 5 stars direct

takes great gear, sometimes it's a little far back in the crack. felt pretty hard for 10b. I'll say 10c. ran out the last piece and opted for the more direct line going straight for the anchor on dikes.
