3 out of 5 stars First climb of 2012

Tried placing some gear on my way up just to practice because I've never done it before. This one requires some big gear.

5 out of 5 stars raining dust

Fine hand and fist jams and a tough little move turning the slight overhang near the top. i needs a good brushing out on a dry day.
