3 out of 5 stars If you love Cake Walk

then you will like March Hare. Both climbs are very similar in that a harder than it looks initial corner leads to a roof without much rest in between. A small nut will protect the roof but you had better be quick!

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

This is a great route the dihedral goes at about 5.9. The overhang to face transition is hard to protect without hangdoging. Compitent leaders push through this section to gain the ledge above --- ground fall is possible without a good piece under the roof or you can place good pro in the right crack with much effort. Transition from the dihedral over the roof to the parrallell cracks is exciting an worth doing.
Rest of the climb goes at 5.8 to 5.9 and varies from nice face holds to crack moves.
