4 out of 5 stars fun

Couple of moves to gain the face then up a giant knob field to the top. Was so into cruising the knobs I accidently skipped a bolt.

3 out of 5 stars Toproping Slow Dancer/Penny Candy

I couldn't spot the bolts on Slow Dancer from the ground so I dropped a TR from the top. We did Slow Dancer and Penny Candy. I agree with McNamara re: awkward and difficult to protect at start.
