4 out of 5 stars Heady at the grade!

Nice route. I think you should be pretty solid at the grade, because it would be a long swinging fall at the crux.

Got a clean lead after taking a 46 foot dive bomb on this route four months ago (the pin held). Every cliff needs testpieces like this.

3 out of 5 stars Success

Took me three trips - going up, downclimbing, etc - to get the nerve up to make the moves.
