2 out of 5 stars sketchy start

start seemed more the crux than anything, though also at ledge. As someone else noted you have to top out and use the anchor to right unless you want to rap off one bolt. Looks like there used to be an anchor but now only one hangar left.

4 out of 5 stars The start!

So the climb is fun, but the start is awkward. Love the first bolt!

Must top out to walk to far away anchors.
