Description:

I thought this was quite hard for its grade (10b) for me--a girl, 5.3. I didn't like having to climb the dead tree to clip the first bolt, and it didn't get any better from there!

3 out of 5 stars Interesting Start

Once you figure out how to do it it's not that bad. Went up differently than I thought. Grade in the book is 5.10b.

2 out of 5 stars TR-ed it...

Tree is not necessary. Not my favorite route. Kinda contrived.

If that tree ever falls over or gets taken down it may up the grade quite a bit. I thought it was fun, even with the tree.
