4 out of 5 stars The Flying Nun

Follows the crack up from the dihedral, which is always fun to start this route from. This was a great route, think I would want some cams to try to lead it though. It was a great deal of fun on TR though. Good exposure and the roof at the top was a blast to through a heel on.

5 out of 5 stars Crazy Alice to The Flying Nun

good link-up if you wish to go the next 30-35ft (the crux) of the Nun... the roof is great due to it's one committing move when you're about 100ft in the air. makes you feel all warm and tingly inside when you stick it. lol
