5 out of 5 stars Exciting

Great route, very exciting from start to finish. Wild scary start on thin brass and wires leads to an awesome arete with a very cool pod for gear. Definitely recommend red TCU or brown tri-cam for up high.

4 out of 5 stars Airy as it gets

Followed TNT Ted on this one, very insecure runout start leads to some very airy arete climbing with pro that cannot be seen until you get to it. An excellent toprope or climb to second someone on!
