4 out of 5 stars Not Bad

Fun route with a sequential crux that comes early on. Definitely worth doing. bolt spacing is a little sporty for the quarry!

With this redpoint I do complete my assignment (Raging Raptor, Forbidden Fruit and Megalomania) given to me by Brent & Alex. My next assignment is Adrenaline, an 'entry-level 12b'.

4 out of 5 stars Nice route

This route reminds me a bit of Leviathan in that it has some long reaches between very good holds and some balancing with blocky holds. Also the start is dicey if you are too short to clip the bolt from the ground. However, the crux is significantly more strenuous and technical than that of Leviathan. There is also a challenging move guarding the anchors, but I'd say its only 11a/b (height dependent). Though the crux is also harder than any single move on Forbidden Fruit, its much less sustained, so I don't think it will take me too long to bag the redpoint.
