3 out of 5 stars couplf of variations

to the start. straight under the bolt might be 5.9, stay right of the bolt and more like 5.7/5.8; Stick clip might be nice if you're not solid to the first bolt. Eases up substantially after 1st bolt.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

Good route, a bit far the first bolt, someone I was with fell before the bolt and broke their foot, gets easier after first bolt.

4 out of 5 stars Onsight Ascent

Tough first bolt for beginners, but after a couple top rope ascents, lead will be a breeze. Good exposure...50' feels like 75'

5 out of 5 stars Hard start

Nice welcome to the wall. Average 5.9 with really fun holds and huecos. The starting moves to the first bolt were tricky. (First time on the far side). After leading the route we could not rap down. The rings caused too much friction so after rapping, I had to go up from the side to retrieve the rope.

3 out of 5 stars Blurry

All the routes over seem the same. I couldn't tell 5.8 from .10d. But it was a cold, wet day and I was just attempting to bang out as many routes as I could TR solo.
