4 out of 5 stars the holds are there!

Short tech section down low and then steepish hidden jugs all the way to the top.

5 out of 5 stars a committing pumpfest

Crux is a tough sequence of moves after the first bolt (which is quite high). Establish under the roof then pop up for the crystals and move fast. The rest is pumpy but the holds are huge and just where you need them.
