4 out of 5 stars Beginnerable

First climb in years! As a beginner, I found it very challenging, but I was able to complete it without resting on the rope. Stay in the cracks at the beginning. Feels good man.

3 out of 5 stars Blue Spark

I sometimes struggle with the start since it is often slippery, but once I get past it, it's fine. I usually traverse a bit left after the 2nd bolt. I find the 5.9 Through the Smoke route more fun.
