4 out of 5 stars my first at the loaf

Some nice moves through the midsection after the first set of rap rings. The bat hissing was hillarious...

4 out of 5 stars Cool route!!

Two small nuts protect the seam. There is a bat in the right crack down low that was pissed off and hissed at me. The climbing is super fun and a little reachy. A little run out on easier terrain.

5 out of 5 stars Fantastic route

Placed a ball nut and a small nut to protect opening moves. The crux for me was after the first bolt to reach a knob on very precise and committing moves. Felt harder than 5.8.
