4 out of 5 stars First and third pitch

Lead p1 & 3. P1 is super long and got major rope drag. Would have preferred to use doubles or brought all slings rather than a mix of slings and quickdraws.

4 out of 5 stars Opt for the Beast

The beast flake was awesome... one of the best climbs around.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent

This is a great climb. The last pitch is especially memorable. I've heard recommendations of doing the Beast Flake variation to avoid the offwidth but I think that avoids the most difficult part of the route. It felt very insecure and pretty difficult.

3 out of 5 stars Hard!

led P1 and P2 in one pitch. The offwidth on P3 felt harder than anything on Book of Solemnity.
