3 out of 5 stars A Little Spicey

Not a bad little route. A little spicey in spots with some difficult routefinding. General RRC slab climbing.

4 out of 5 stars whew

Onsighted this last route after having a bad climbing day, mentally. Crux is at the point of a leftward traverse that then starts turning upward. Feels very exposed because your last good footing is maybe 5 feet to the left of your bolt, and the crux heads left another 2 or 3 feet on thin footing and cranks straight upward (pendulum if you rip). But after pushing through this section there's a beautiful ridge to stand on and clip in.
