3 out of 5 stars Difficult roof

I'm with trevzilla on this one. Pitch 1 is more of a scramble than a rock climb. Pitch 2 is quite similar to nearby Spare Rib, but less clean and more chossy (my second managed to break off a toe and hand hold simultaneously - sorry guys). But negotiating the offwidth / roof at the beginning of pitch 2 I thought was much more difficult than anything at the 5.8 Spare Rib next door. Worth Noting: nobody from our party was smiling when they topped out on this one.

I thought this route may have been sandbagged. VERY fun though. Vertical, and some tricky moves are in there. Right up there with sparerib itself.
