Description:

Long intimidating 5.9 just right of Freefrom. At first glance it doesn't look very good. Actually is a nice route. Might need a 60 meter rope for this one.

3 out of 5 stars guidebook 4 star route...

...not in my book. A 4-star experience doesn't lead to nowhere as this route does. What sport climb ends with no anchors? There ought to be a matching bolt at #7 or a pair just above them right of the hanging nose block.

Climbing is fine, but route finding at the top is not ridiculous. A trad route may have no anchors, but not a bolted crack.

The anchor situation on this route is fucked. There are bolts leading multiple directions and no independent anchor. Would actually be a nice route if it ended at the same height as Freeform.

Got a little confused on where to go at the top, didn't know it shared anchors with freeform.
