5 out of 5 stars Fun crux, sustained climbing.

Good thin hand jams in the crack. There is a potentially loose hold left of the crack that kept me in the crack.

The bottom half goes great on gear, but the top half of the route is a bit space on gear placements (if you are skipping the bolts for a natural gear climb). Finding the very few gear placements in the last 35' really made the route for me. Exciting!!!

5 out of 5 stars Tricky crux

That right leaning crack move is tricky. Definitely can get some good jams in there, but then you have to deal with the exposure while you lean right to get a good purchase. Rest of the climb is easy.

5 out of 5 stars Grin and beer it

Nice moves thru the crack. Watch out tho'--there are some amazingly sharp crystals inside and on some of the flakes on this wall.
Might be a 5.9 move for some people, especially those that shy away from a perfectly good hand jam as some of my friends did.
