3 out of 5 stars Just a set of stairs

Some 2 years later it is. The bottom is a piece then it gets juggy and then to a few sweet finger locks.

Definitely a fun route. Maybe it's because I boulder a lot, but the "boulder crux" was definitely not the crux for me - just after you step right in the juggy section, there is a very thin vertical seam with two very small handholds, but at least the hold up above them is good. Definitely a recommended route, though for me at least, this was much harder than 5.10a.

very cool route, my first 5.10, the crux is crimpy then you get a couple good holds, and there's a hidden pocket up near the top.
