3 out of 5 stars Holy shit

The only reason I sent this was because I was too scared to fall. Awkward clips right at the end of your reach; first clip is 12 feet up and then has a 25 foot runout (albeit on easy rock). Make sure you think about your route after the ledge so as not to turn this route into a 5.10. But the feeling of satisfaction at surviving and sending it was nothing to be ignored either.

1 out of 5 stars Easy moves but kinda scary!

Straightforward 5.8 moves with a really heady "psychological crux"!

If you get spooked easily, ask for some beta-- really detailed beta.

Just keep in mind: the moves are all 5.8 and under.
Makes trusting things a bit easier.
