4 out of 5 stars Whatever you do, don't fall.

I may have enjoyed the hike (scenery) more than the climb.

Shocked everyone says 5.8; I am thinking 5.9+. It didn't help that I got a wicked tricep cramp on my first mantle move, but still...

Bolt spacing: looking down >10' at my last clip I wondered how many times I would bounce between the walls. (Yeah, I am a wuss.)

My advice: lead only if you onsight 5.10a as the consequences of a fall could be injurious.

6 resin bolts; 2 resin bolt anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Super

Fun. Clips are a bit far apart which makes for a more trad-like feel.

Good times! Def a little sketch coming out of the chimney, but it's a super fun route.
