3 out of 5 stars Tricky Crux

Starts with a very thin crack, but you can use a ledge to the right to skip the first few moves. At 5'7" holds at the crux were slightly out of reach.

3 out of 5 stars very fun

Climbed this two days ago. Excellent climb. Crux can be protected by a solid BD #4 placement. That's always relieving. By the way, this is definitely a 5.9.
