4 out of 5 stars Interesting.

The back-sloped start is a bit rude for 5.7, very juggy soon, and then the curious crack. The middle part seemed too thin for feet to be where one would be placing pro. I traversed to the arete there, and on top-rope that is an optional variation. The crack becomes very narrow and sharp, too, so watch your fingers getting snagged if you fall. If it were easily anchored, this route would be quite popular, imo. The rings for 'Sailor' are an option for lowering off, btw, but with a lot of rope work.

Thought for awhile that this thing looked intimidating and would have crappy pro. Good pro and never a hard stance.
