3 out of 5 stars fun

staying on center of bolt line makes it hardest, crux seemed around 3rd the 4th bolt more 3rd. May have been at one time but don't think this is a 5.9 anymore.

Might be potential to hit lower ledge if you fall hard at crux. Top is runout but 5.7ish climbing. night climb wee

4 out of 5 stars 2nd to 4th bolt crux

Thin face b/w 2nd and 4th bolt. If you stay right of the bolt line b/w bolts 2 and 3, the holds are there. If you continue right to the 4th bolt, the holds are tiny and committing with tenuous feet. Or you can move to the left of the line for easier holds to get to the 4th bolt. Overall easier crux than Black Magic Poodle. High but easier first bolt.
