4 out of 5 stars nice slab, better crack

I dug this route. one big lieback/high step move off the ground, then into some pretty thin but low-angle slab that gets progressively thinner until the crux move to the start of the crack. Crack is great, can be jammed or climbed like a flake. It's a long runout on lead to the next bolt, which can be clipped hands-free standing on the ledge at the top of the crack. Likelihood of a fall is quite low, but you could deck. The rest of the climb is pretty easy, low-angle with big edges, taking you up high enough to be quite satisfied with yourself when you're done.
