4 out of 5 stars pretty mild for a Moore's 8

Just a couple business moves getting into the corner and then up and out and these protect quite well. If you pay attention to feet it makes a big difference. Once through the starter crack, the big flake you see from the ground looks kind of scary - it's really thin and poorly attached but kind of draws you to it b/c you think there should be pro. A few good cracks on the face to work with then things get a bit runout, although the climbing is fairly easy, provided you find the path of least resistance. Overall though, I'd recommend it. Maybe I was just having a good day but the level of effort and scariness were pretty low compared to some other Moore's 5.8s.

I enjoyed this route although it is a little awkward in spots.
