3 out of 5 stars Fun

Good climb. An interesting variation stays to the left of the bolt line. About 5.10.

3 out of 5 stars 3rd ascent of my life

not too difficult but fun to learn on. Hardest part may have been the very start, then a little tricky smearing just before you get to the gigantic flake but fairly easy after that.
