tricky at spots, height dependent to place, but good once you get it in. Be sure of the gear you place to protect the moves out of the lower bulge. People have died on this route from protection failing here.

4 out of 5 stars Fun route

Fun route a bit dirty towards the top as its not the most popular. Good gear on the route however be careful towards the bottom.

4 out of 5 stars Fun.

A really fun, dynamic route. Non-standard fare. Very steep for a 5.7, but the holds are ample. Crux is probably easier for tall folks (like me). I found myself wondering why it seems like a relatively un-loved route. It's better than some more popular routes I've done.
