2 out of 5 stars meh

I climbed this on the old glue in bolts. I wouldn't recommend it; there's a pretty good runout between 2 and 3 (unless you're into that). I also thought the anchors were tough as hell to clip, which is annoying because the rest of the climb was mindless jugging. Wouldn't climb it again.
