4 out of 5 stars Love the grovel.

Very enjoyable. Like others have said, you'll throw the kitchen sink at it technique-wise. Be prepared for grime, spider webs and above all loose stuff. All of which just add character. Oh yeah, and it's long - 100 ft or so.

5 out of 5 stars Very interesting route

I really like how much character this route has. It definitely takes a variety of techniques, ranging from face, to chimney, to off width, to hand crack. This was more fun than climbing it in pouring rain a few days ago.
