4 out of 5 stars What is It?

Lots of fun. Slightly past vertical at the top. Not in the guidebook, but one the best climbs in the Grotto.

3 out of 5 stars onsight

wasnt sure what i was getting myself into, as i saw the line of bolts heading up but it wasnt listed in any guide book. the 5.9 business isnt until the last 10 feet and is slightly past vertical (at least it felt like it). very fun route!
