5 out of 5 stars Awesome!

This climb rules. I remember it being very steep, with super sketchy traverse to second bolt, totally exposed! Crux is thin move just after clipping second bolt. S-town classic!

3 out of 5 stars Nice to do it again.

Pumpy if you heel hook up directly to the first bolt. Funky crux at move to the right and then a few technical moves high.
