4 out of 5 stars fools gold is right

The start of this climb is the crux,that being said if you do not start from the first hold on the left and just go straight up it is not a 5.10a, there is some very tricky heel hooking that has to be done and then it is easy climbing, Have fun on this one and start from the left

This climb was fun. To be honest, I was a little surprised when I found out that it's a 5.10a, it didn't seem that difficult! This is a good climb, I enjoyed it.

3 out of 5 stars One of the first 10a's i've done

Originally, we thought we were on a high rated climb. Later we found out it was fools gold and that it was a 10a
