2 out of 5 stars Thin face

I like burly overhangs. Thin face is hard for me. Not a lot of gear to protect the opening moves. I will not lead this...not my type of climb. The friction slab near the top is fun.

2 out of 5 stars super thin start

Leads to nice slabby climbing. Especially after you clear the little roof. This climb really hurt my already aching feet.
