3 out of 5 stars Nice climb

We TR'd it after doing Precarious perch. Burly exit on big rails.

3 out of 5 stars pull the roof on crimpers?

That's not the description I would use. Huge rails abound over the roof. Pull up, get your feet on and it's over. I think the crux is climbing the face to the right of the left facing corner far below the roof. Tricky, smeary feet get you to the base of the corner below the roof. Felt reachy and technical to me. My leader could not finish the route, I was too chicken to try. Turns out I should have, the roof was pretty straight forward for me and he had really geared up all of the harder parts.

3 out of 5 stars Fun.

Short but fun. I didn't think it was that hard for the grade, at least compared to some other Gunks 9's.

3 out of 5 stars short but hard

Followed Alex C. I found it quite hard getting from the sloper to the jug.
