3 out of 5 stars Nice Climb

Real fun moves in the corner. The top is a little intersting to figure out.

3 out of 5 stars Good 5.9, couple strong moves and straight forward

There is no stake in the ground anymore, just recognize it off of the dyhedral and bolts that follow under it. Some decently strong 5.9 moves warrant the + if you have not climbed in a while. Little more strength required for this route than Herbal Essence second route to its left. I will definitely climb this again.
