4 out of 5 stars Hard to believe that P2 is a 6

It's airy, it's thin on pro during the traverse and it's committing.

3 out of 5 stars I don't think this is PG, I think it's R

If you blow the traverse, you will be hitting a lot of rock on the way down. It's a good climb, but there are better protected climbs. Not for the new 5.6 leader.

5 out of 5 stars Honestly, I don't think this is PG, I think it's R

While the feet are huge on the traverse, there is no gear. Your last gear is the pin. If you blow the traverse, you have a very hard swing back into the corner. It's not over when you do the traverse. That final little corner to the top is in your face.

4 out of 5 stars Great

Better than the guide book gives it credit for. I liked the middle of this climb quite a bit. Seemed like plenty of pro to me.
