4 out of 5 stars Sloper-a-no-go

Pretty mellow dihedral/chimney climbing (mid to upper 5.10ish) to a tricky traverse and a big move to a low percentage (for me) sloper. I got really efficient at the bottom because I fell off the sloper six times in a row. I was really excited to finally get it right.
