3 out of 5 stars Sandbagged or Wrong Route?

The crux seemed to be the hard 5.10 moves getting past the first bolt. After that nothing harder than 5.7 till you traverse over at the finish. Book says it's runout but it's probably not that bad if your belayer is paying attention.

3 out of 5 stars Muddy

Durring the traverse i stuck my hand in the horizontal pocket crack and when I pulled it out it was covered in what I hope was mud. Fun Climb nonetheless.

4 out of 5 stars First Sport Lead

Took a minute just to get onto the rock. Then it was pretty smooth sailing. Not bad for an intermediate face route.
