4 out of 5 stars A good sustained route

For the grade, I feel it is an excellent route to practice on. Even with the face features to the right of the crack it mostly stays consistant the entire route, great for learning "head control". I soloed the route after having climbed sinocranium, theater of shadows, raindance, and wheat thin. Even after climbing this route repeatedly for the last decade it still feels harder than the average 5.7 due to its long sustained climbing.
