4 out of 5 stars good time

First pitch seems to be the business. Certain spots you dont want to fall on first pitch, overall good climbing

5 out of 5 stars rope solo.

This is a great route with excellent rock first two pitches The first pitch crux felt about 11 C to me. The second pitch crux through a roof was much harder-maybe two letter grades. Did something break? The third pitch rock deteriorated some, and there was an ankle breaker area.

5 out of 5 stars hard 11c climbing

I found the first pitch to be quite challenging for 11c. The climbing was incredibly varied however, with a wonderfully fun slab start (6 bolts or so), a very cool cruxy bulg section with heal hooks, followed by overhang and stemming. I finally got the red point on my third go, but I would probably call this a 12a or so, especially given the endurance required. The first pitch requires 17 draws!!!!

5 out of 5 stars GREAT ROUTE

I found the third pitch to be a little run out with terrible full potential.

All around a great route.

I would give this an R for the third pitch. JMHO
