4 out of 5 stars Lots of "hidden beta" (Very height dependent)

Found some more beta that made the crux of "new release" a bit easier (the upper section of this climb). Also seemed to flow a lot better when I didn't have to stop to clip...

5 out of 5 stars Long route for the area

This route was the most fun of any so far. Is it a boulder problem? Is it a sport route? Kind of both. Cool thing is that the crux is a traverse that's essentially on the ground, so I was able to work it solo for awhile, then I roped up and bagged the route first try! Highly recommended...

(Note: Really not sure how to grade it. This route is very beta intensive, and probably very height dependant (I'm tall). Once you figure it out, there isn't any move on here harder than V3, but the pump factor is HUGE. Either way, it seemed soft.)

4 out of 5 stars Waiting for Guntess

The 13a starts all the way down and right in the cave. After traversing out, avoid the arete use the face holds. Fun to work.... low boulder problem crux to a pumpy 12a finish. Highly recommended!!!
