4 out of 5 stars Excellent route

but care should be taken to avoid having cams getting pushed back into the crack by the rope. I had an old school #5 in the wide crux section that fell out when I tried to move. Bring a Bro if you don't feel confident running out the wide a bit.

5 out of 5 stars Classic.

This is the best trad line i've done to date. I got by just fine with a BD #3 Camalot as my largest piece. Use the pockets under the roof or bring a big piece for the roof itself.
