4 out of 5 stars Sandbagged!

This route is not a 5.8 in my opinion. It is sustained climbing for most of the way. Just keeps you on your toes the whole way. Much harder than any of the other 5.8's on Dragon Back.

4 out of 5 stars Fabulous slightly tricky crack climb

Once again, the curse of the small climber leads you to be creative to get up certain spots on this climb. Lots of stemming can be used and upper body umph to get to the holds which taller climbers reach easily.

What a scorcher of a day! Pitch one felt pretty fuckin' sandbagged to me (though not as bad as the crux of the standard route).
