4 out of 5 stars Awkward, but fun

I was the first in my group to give the route a shot. We did end up having to reset the anchors as there was a very large amount of rope drag with two long sport draws. Switching to four draws helped dramatically.

The start was very body jammy with a right hand finger jam and right foot jam while the left foot back stepped. This proceeded quite a bit through the flaring off width until some side pulls become available providing full laybacks. Shortly after, there is a large flake which is dangerous for toproping, but ultimately the best path up.
