3 out of 5 stars Mixed.

Using a few cams makes this not run out. Though there are bolts at the cruxy bits.

3 out of 5 stars take a little bit of gear

Helps to take a little bit of gear to supplement the three bolts, especially before the 1st bolt and after the 3rd.

4 out of 5 stars tough

Like it's neighbor Bat out of Hell, this one isn't easy. I think I cheated around the mid-level crux but plan to go back and take another stab at it. The roof was quite a workout. Leaders take note that you don't get anything from that second bolt on the roof until the anchors and it was pretty pumpy!

4 out of 5 stars Clean Climb

Little bit of dirt on the top section but otherwise the route was good. If you want to make it harder swing right and go over the roof. Pumpy.
