3 out of 5 stars I don't think this felt 5.8

Maybe I was having a high gravity day, but, this felt hard to me. The step across was fun.

3 out of 5 stars headless

fun moves onto the face - instant exposure courtesy of the 1 piece between you and the ground 40 ft below once you step off the block. Crux move is a bit of a puzzler. Fun to do if you're at this side of the cliff but beware the swain book beta that sends you right to some phantom tree. Go to the fixed tat anchor, nothing out right but thin gear and lichen.

3 out of 5 stars Headless Horseman

VERY soft for the grade, replaces Balrog as my "gimme" five ten. Nevertheless, this short but fine line deserves more traffic and possibly a 5.8+ rating, certainly worth doing along with Wegetables, Tennish, and Fancy Free
