4 out of 5 stars Fun!

I led the first pitch a long time ago but never did the second. Finally got to it. It's short but pretty good.

4 out of 5 stars Very interesting and thoughtful

Not burly, but very different from most gunks climbs. We ran it in a single pitch, I thought it was rather contrived traversing right then traversing back left. Nice climb. Seemed much harder than an 8.

2 out of 5 stars Um, what?

P1 is a lot harder than 5.8. P2 is no gimme either, but it was fun. I led P2 clean but hung on P1.

I put an R rating because if one blows the opening moves then getting hurt is very real possibility due to the nasty landing. I know of one belayor who broke her wrist spotting this section.
