4 out of 5 stars Fun but sharp

Some sharp finger pockets just above the second bolt set you up to get through the crux, using first a toe around the arete, a left foot smear, a bump to the horn and finally a heel hook around the arete. Cool sequence and definitely harder than any of the 10d's/11a's at Gorgeous or Apes.

4 out of 5 stars fun route once you know the moves

took some figuring out, but a nice climb. dont exactly enjoy the last clip, as it is either a very high clip from the low jug or go above on less positive holds.
