The crux is for sure the flaring narrow chimney. I thought it was fun though. After the small roof there are jugs all the way to the pine tree with the rotting slings. It showed me that i need to really practice stemming a lot more.
OK so I am not the only one that thought this was bagged..
Did this as a warmup so I could get my buddy that has never trad led before on the sharp end. I thought the route would be less awkward than it looked and I was wrong. This route does not deserve a star and feels like 5.7 flaring chimney climbing with difficult protection because the crack is in the deepest part of the flare where you don't want to climb. Not recommended for the beginning leader.
