3 out of 5 stars Decent Beginner climb

Nice view from top. Off-width crack for sure, watch your knees and be creative.

3 out of 5 stars Knee Catcher

Warning: don't work your left knee deep inside this off-width. The climb is well-named--my knee got stuck going up--I somehow though it had slipped down into a jam, therefore tried pushing upward to remove it.After 10-15 minutes my belayer lowered me off my last piece of pro--had to get down about 5 feet to a spot wide enough to extricate my leg.

By this point, I was exhausted, and the climb seemed harder than 5.6. Somebody next the bottom explained I needed to do some kind of foot-twist jam on this size of off-width. Maybe try that.

The edges on this bitch are sharp.
