5 out of 5 stars This route is one tought ****er!!!

Pepare yourself. I don't know who rated this 5.11b, but it's definitely hard!!! I got two consecutive laps on top-rope, but never did lead this one before I left Hawai'i.

Hard, thin crux at the top of the black tower.

5 out of 5 stars Burly Start

Fun climb. Not sure if crux is at start or 2/3rds way up the climb. I think at the start after first clip.
