5 out of 5 stars R start

This climb really does have an R first section to the first bolt. If you start off the ramp of an adjacent climb its still just as freaky because the true start to this climb has a bad landing and the first piece of (bolted) pro is quite a bit off the deck. You can place, but its awkward to keep the feet long enough for a nut placement so its one of those "just go for that first bolt" sorts of R ratings...

Great climb, along with Yosemite Crack on the right side of Band and Full marge this is a must climb when visiting Greensprings.
