3 out of 5 stars ok

Would be better doing this trad. The bolts take the fun out of it, but I used them anyway ;)

4 out of 5 stars Great Route

Intimidating traverse to a really fun slab. Short but sweet.

3 out of 5 stars none

Traverse at the start can be tricky, since you can't see your feet at all.

Falling on the traverse on TR will mess your rope up bad, the edge of the rock is very sharp. I've already cut one rope on it and had a close call with another.

Very easy after the traverse, with closely spaced bolts.
