4 out of 5 stars Atlantic

Was a tight squeeze, but a fun climb. Was interesting to figure out the pro for this route. I really enjoyed the route, but as Zack said it was tough to do after being a bit tired. Was my last lead of the day for sure. O' and the view from the top is amazing just like most climbs on Quartz!

Not a climb to do while tired, but it was fun.

3 out of 5 stars I must be getting thicker.

It seemed like a very tight squeeze to get into the chimney this time.
I combined the route into one pitch. That was a mistake. Make it two pitches, your rope will thank you.
