3 out of 5 stars Better have a good leader head and a better spotter!

Pretty much no pro for the 1st 20 feet. The climbing is fun though. Crux is up high getting into the upper crack & topping out.

3 out of 5 stars Spicy start

A little runout and tenuous in the first 15 feet; make sure your gear is good once you get it. The upper crack/bulge is what makes the route.

3 out of 5 stars Hard start

The start to this thing is pretty intense for a 5.8, and if you don't pre-place protection in the crack to the right then the gear isn't so great for the first 20 feet or so. But the route has fun climbing throughout, so it's definitely worth doing.
