4 out of 5 stars ufta

To me it feels at least two grades harder than what the local guide gives it. Stout, it was all I could do to flail up on toprope. Most of the route I was screaming, cursing, and laughing - the top 30' or so is beautifully featured. This route done by itself might be pg13. Sunny butterflies definitely spices it up.
