4 out of 5 stars Easier than fissure Man?

Climbing partner and I both thought this was easier than Fissure Man which has a tougher time coming out of the little cave to establish on the face. I would probably lead it this way next time as the bottom 3-4 bolts, while pumpy and a little scary with the wall behind you, is more straightfwd.

5 out of 5 stars Fun Route

belay out of cavern at base of the wall, start the climb right above the water. Really fun route, transitioning to the crack is the worse part only because you have to leave the comfort of an amazing jug to reach the clip. dont sell yourself short by only going to the lower anchors, go for the top!

4 out of 5 stars way more fun than it looks.

bit run out when you move to the second half of the climb, but its such an easy part, you're on your feet so its feels safer. way more fun then it looks. cant wait to climb it again.

4 out of 5 stars FUN

this is one the most fun climbs. great movement. nothing too out there, it's all smooth and static and FUN! try not to take a fall on the first wall though. it seems pretty close to the back wall.
also, when you get up there, don't pay tOO much attention to the crack. it's good sometimes, and at other times, there is nothing in the crack, but HUGE jugs to the side. so keep your eyes open.

4 out of 5 stars Felt like a 10C to me....

I top-roped this after Joe set the rope. Quite a fun climb, I found it to be a bit pumpy. A fall near the second bolt wouldn't feel too good.
