3 out of 5 stars awkward

A decent warm up, but very awkward. There are some variations that increase the difficulty while making the bolting a bit more manageable (don't wrap around the arÍte). The cracks at the bottom are wonderful though.

2 out of 5 stars Not Worth Doing

Definitely 5.9 but poorly placed bolts with odd stances. Skip this one and climb First Dose again.
