2 out of 5 stars Take Care

Watch a dirty start, then cruise to the anchors. A little grit on some holds along the way, and a suspiciously detached looking block with some lovely looking holds I avoided hauling on.

4 out of 5 stars Nice start

Took a fall just after clipping the first bolt. Overall a fun climb.
