3 out of 5 stars Z Cracks

This is 5.9 in the book and I concur (not 5.10). Fun short crack. Jams and stemming reach a junction. Jam the left enough to stem back right and pull a jug to the top above the closed corner section. Can set a gear top rope for others to the right with a #3 and #4.

A challenging 5.9 miniature route - funky moves cutting back left into the 2nd crack.

5 out of 5 stars Harder than it looks.

Had to rest on a #3 Camalot near the top, hardest crack lead I have done so far.
