5 out of 5 stars Great Route

Hard opening pull, then a couple more tricky moves. Kind of exciting finish.

5 out of 5 stars Sometime last fall.

Just before halloween last fall. Love the route just like I love Mary's Cookies. Puts Big Star next in line along with the other 12's on the wall. Very technical. I've seen done and myself done the bottom crux in a few different ways.

4 out of 5 stars ascent note

Definitely much easier after the first 2 bolts but still not over by any means.
