5 out of 5 stars Fun and varied climb

P1 start is difficult and felt quite slimy/greasy. ONce you are off the ground, the climb eases up considerably. P2 is a lot of fun. The offwidth is a blast, the exit right is a traverse with HUGE hands and smaller feet. Lots of fun. We linked it with P3 of Face to Face.
