4 out of 5 stars Great bouldering start

Great start under the roof. V2 problem followed by a solid 5.8 climb. 5.9- in the book, but probably a 5.9+ in reality. Check out the snake skin about 20 feet from the top in a pocket just below a 20" rock wedged in the crack.

3 out of 5 stars Nice roof to start off with.

Was not sure about the roof, but it was easier than expected with the correct holds. There is a big block that looks like it will come out if pulled on, but I used it to pull the ruff and it didn't budge. Upper section has some thin face holds. Watch out at the top of this there's wasps in the Locomotive Breath crack.
