5 out of 5 stars Hope you got long legs!

Nice route that keeps going up. You have to talk to your belayer if you're leading, since visibility is cut off eventually. Fun to start but once you transition, stay to the left! Don't get sucked into the right and try to go up the small overhang/wedge thinking it's easier!
