4 out of 5 stars Slabby at the top

Good route. Fifth clip was the hardest for me (awkwardly clipped with left hand while manteling with right). The slab at the top was sketchy, so I went way left to the crack. Sustained fun route

Good route that has some crack/arete/slab climbing all mixed together.

4 out of 5 stars good

pretty fun route. the bolts are in good spots except for the dummy bolt three feet out of your reach on the ledge when the last bolt is a foot below the ledge.

2 out of 5 stars meh

Nothing to write home about. The bottom isn't harder than the rest, but a piece is probably a really good idea.
