Description:

Easy climbing leads to a brief crimping crux with a big move past the bulge, then easier climbing above as well (5.10). Grade is probably height dependant to be honest.

4 out of 5 stars one tough section

the top and bottom are quite easy with a brutal crux in the middle. Very long and powerful throw with bad feet. Definitely 12b if you're under 6 ft.

3 out of 5 stars Hard

crux. Echo what was previously said about height-dependency. The right hand throw would be significantly easier if 6+ ft. The feet are pretty skimpy.

3 out of 5 stars Short but sweet

At the crux I got my right foot really far right, smeared the left on a dime edge. Couldn't reach the right crimp so I bumped to a sloper right below it, then to the crimp. Hard.
