3 out of 5 stars Very nice short climb

V2 to a short crux, and then easier (but thoughtful) to the top. A few small chunks of rock did come off. On my OS attempt, I worked out the sequence but couldn't get it clean. On my second attempt I would have sent, but got my hand caught in a bight of rope. Sent it third try.

4 out of 5 stars 2 Tries!

Felt hard at first, then once figuring out the crux and moving efficiently, sent it. If you spend too much time at the beginning, you're toast!
