5 out of 5 stars Very Fun Climb

Its hard to say what is "on" with this route. If you stay off the left face of the dihedral and climb the finger crack, it is much much more difficult, in the 5.7+ range, as advertised. If you use footholds on the left side, you can avoid the crack, and it becomes more like 5.6-. Very fun off width book type thing at top, and good finger cracks in the middle.

I protected the toprope off of a tree and a boulder at the top, pretty easy setup.

4 out of 5 stars Sent direct.

I'd keep the rating at a 5.7 on the direct - but I'm also 6'2". Sent it first go. Ugly finger crack, much of which I avoided with my reach. Sweet climb though!
