5 out of 5 stars gordy top ropes Backward Evolution

Sweet route .I wish now that I had tried leading it.Got it ,first try on top rope.Cool side pulls with thin friction holds ,for hands and feet at crux .Fun little overhanging section that has great holds, if you reach up for them.Dont let watching others on this one intimidate you.Just do it!

Fun laybacks to a thin transition crux. A heel hook appeared at just the right time to save the onsight for me. Excellent climb, probably falls somewhere around 10d / 11a.
