3 out of 5 stars Watch that first step!

The moves on the bottom leading to and past the first bolt are pretty bold. I should have led it, but the bottom looked kinda rough...because it was.

A good rote for toproping, scary looking lead.

3 out of 5 stars Tough beginning

I think the first part is 5.10 then past the 1st bolt is 5.9. I treated this like a normal sport climb which probably wasn't the smartest thing in the world to do...oh well. Definitely interesting.
