4 out of 5 stars I dig this route

Fun but short, make sure you want to climb other routes down there the walk back blows. PG13 for the people who jump start this route

3 out of 5 stars Finally got it

This one defeated me earlier in the Fall and I couldn't even make the first move (I am 5'8"). I finally pulled it on TR and declared victory!

4 out of 5 stars Pulled it, finally.

First try was with a match-hand on the pointy chunk, as others have done. For me, the left reach was too far. Ben and Clinton showed me a small side pull with the left hand to better balance for the left reach, and a high right foot smear. Oh yeah. After that, big grips for big pulls over the angle and done. The back-sloped right face is more interesting than the rest of the crack.
