I love slapping Kelly. Feels like a very bouldery route, love it!

Finally got it after four or five tries. I like every move on this route, even clipping the third bolt (weird but feels solid if you get it right). Gave it five stars relative to other routes at redwing

Finally. This is a hard 12a. And it's a better climb than I had thought at first. Very good rock. Hard clips.

I don't like routes that the hardest part is clipping, not some crux move(s). The crux of this climb is hanging a draw and clipping the 3rd bolt. To be fair, I skipped that part on my redpoint burn. Okay route otherwise with some fun moves around bolt #2.

Very aesthetic climb. Third clip is the crux on lead.
