3 out of 5 stars Very Good

This climb definitely has a few hard moves that are worthy of the grade, the second bolt is in a frustrating spot just out of reach. The climbing is safe but you should be solid at the grade.

4 out of 5 stars Spicy

Clipping the second bolt was a little spicy....long reach.
A powerfull "iron cross" move past the third bolt, some thin moves to the forth bolt and then one more crux move with a long reach. The angle then backs off to easier more secure (though slightly more run out) moves to the anchors. This route's well protected in the harder areas though some of the bolts are a bit reachy. Less protected up high but the slightly run out areas are no harder than 5.9. Probably harder if you're under 5'10".
