4 out of 5 stars Squeezy

Squeeze my way up the first off-width then I lay backed the giant flake to the good rest. Hauled on big stuff to the top.

2 out of 5 stars Hmmm... wider than expected

I was kind of hoping for a jamcrack in the back of the wide section based on some beta I got; no such luck. I had to walk a 3 and 4 Camalot the entire way and only put in 4 pieces on the entire route. If you are in doubt bring two #3's and two #4's to ease the spice factor. G protection rating only if you have an arsenal of #4's. Route was surprisingly clean for how often I bet it gets climbed.
