3 out of 5 stars Such a HUGE reach

I agree this is not mentally challenging. I lead it but couldn't finish it.

Not very mentally challenging and short, but fun. First 5.9 lead.

4 out of 5 stars Really, I thought it looked easy...

I am pretty strong and I am pretty good a roofs. I thought this "novelty" climb would be super fun. No problem through the traverse, placed a #5 at the roof. But try as I might I could not reach the horizontal. I took many lead falls today...

2 out of 5 stars Double Clutch

One fall, that's what I get for taking beta from the "uber-crowd." Led both pitches clean, the second pitch deserves more traffic - without it, this is hard to really call a "route."

2 out of 5 stars Novenlty route...fun though

That move is extremely height dependent I say! 5.9+ probably makes sense if you are tall or have big ape index. Took me a few tries to sink the horizontal.
