Description:

Hotly debated grade; Austin Climbing guidebook describes it as 5.10b/d, a range which could depend on your height or your lightness. Some short tiny people have it easy; some don't. Tall thin newbs have flashed it on TR. Has a fun deadpoint move. Under the big roof

5 out of 5 stars Really fun

Really fun route. Crux was a pretty easy dead point for me, my partner had a lot more trouble, with it being such a reach.

Nice route. Love the hands before the dyno. Easy to the chains and fun roof moves. It felt like a 5.10b To me.

4 out of 5 stars Great Route!

The middle dyno area is fun and is a bit easier for taller people - a controlled stand-up grab is doable for taller people, but using a dyno move is much more fun! I am 6'1" and my climbing buddy is 5'3" - she is a strong climber, but the extra length needed to make the mid section move was much harder for her and she used a crimpy mid-hold there. After a few shots on the mid-section dino area, the top is very pumpy but pretty good holds overall. Felt great finishing it! A good endurance strength training route I think.
