5 out of 5 stars Heady

As a short person who can't just clip the bolts while using the easier arete moves and also too short to make some of the moves up the face-- I had to climb up and then over to the arete and traverse over to the bolts to clip them, then traverse back to the arete, etc. I brought a small cam with me to protect the arete while I traversed. Made this climb a lot trickier but I felt pretty accomplished at the top.

3 out of 5 stars Solid

unlike others near it of a similar grade the rock is bomber. I think I clipped every bolt with my right hand. It didn't make sense to me to go straight up the face and maybe that was why it felt easier to me than 5.9
