5 out of 5 stars Fun face climb

Climb the face of the banana, getting to the bolts on top is a little sketchy.

4 out of 5 stars fun getting to the bolts and route

getting to the bolts seemed trickier than the actual route. fun to try out new moves though.

3 out of 5 stars Nice TR

Nice TR with some good moves. Climb ends at bulge below achor unless you want to try to 5.11 moves to top.

If you are sketchy on reaching the bolts, you can set a temp anchor about 20ft away with a really long sling/cordellet combo or another rope.

4 out of 5 stars toproped

Very straight forward climb. Tough if you're short, easy if you're tall.
