4 out of 5 stars Cool climb

Put on your balarina shoes for this one. Very balancy after making burly moves out the roof.

2 out of 5 stars big roof with the crux above it

This climb is similiar to "Hero Smasher" ; both have big roofs with balancey cruxes awaiting just above them. Barbarian Ballet has G protection for its "ballet" crux with old soft iron pins. But its a bit run-out, at least PG-13, on easier ground getting there. The reach from the flake to the holds and pins above the roof is a little scary. But, its all downclimbable if you chicken out. Once you make the clip the fun starts.
