5 out of 5 stars free.. finally..

i first started trying this right as it began getting warm this spring and had to quit because the weather was too humid and i was greasing off the holds. i got a cooler day and went back and got the redpoint first go. the crux really isnt too hard but for me the clipping stance coming out of the crux causes me to bunch up a little tighter than id like and its impossible not to lock your right arm while clipping. still a three star line though.

5 out of 5 stars took awhile, but i got it!

It took me 3 years to work out the beta on the crux moves to finally get the Sport FA. I heard this may have been done on gear first, but I didn't feel it was safe, so I made it a sport route with great bolt placements at the crux. Just let me know if anyone needs the beta as it's hard to figure out.
