5 out of 5 stars Walking on sunshine

I had to give this a shot after seeing Chris Sharma climb it on youtube. This climb consists of very small foot holds and just enough finger holds to keep your balance. It helps to make small moves and go slowly to keep your balance. Very fun.

4 out of 5 stars crimpy is good

a great crimpy problem, holds were sharp and not polished like most of the problems. Origanly it was going to be our warm up problem.
