3 out of 5 stars Fun moves...chossy

Really fun moves but still a little chossy. Slight run out in the middle that is scary only due to the choss factor. I liked the route though.

1 out of 5 stars Grab the Brush

Steep fun moves at the bottom, and a final headwall. Fun moves, but we knocked off lots of loose flakes and choss on the way up and down this route. The FA party needs to clean the loose bits and the epoxy drips.
