3 out of 5 stars Ouch

I protected the 1st 25' with 3 stoppers, and while fumbling with a 4th piece, I slipped off. The upper 2 stoppers (bd 4 & 5) popped and I hit the deck, but thanks to a very attentive belay by Chad, I decked on rope stretch and the injuries were minor. He did an amazing job of pulling in slack to prevent a more serious fall.

Later that day, after cleaning up and clearing the cobwebs, I tr'd the route to see why the gear popped and noticed that the rock broke at both placements.

4 out of 5 stars Not for the beginner 5.8 leader

You'll definitely get your money's worth on this one! Just enough spots in the thinning flake/crack system for fingers and pro. The anchor at the top was sketchy, so we topped out and rapped off of Vision's anchors. Might be better to just finish up and left to the Vision anchors if no one is on it.

4 out of 5 stars Fun flake

Did this in 40ish degree weather. The crux moves on the lower part felt hard (This is a 5.8 in the guidebook, but whatever). Protection was fine with small pieces.
