2 out of 5 stars Eh..

OK rout, it pockets are dirty and filled with sand, made leading a PITA.
form TR the 511a move only deserves that because it covered with sand and is slick. I would recomend a stick clip for hte first bolt, its a ways up there.
the top right chain anchor is loose and needs to be fixed. Plus the chain up there are tiny and kind of sketchy. This rout has a lost of potential but it need work/cleaning.
