5 out of 5 stars beta intensive

Don't try this route if your two finger pocket strength is not good otherwise you'll screw something up. Also, clip the second bolt to avoid the deck potential.

This rarely climbed route is actually pretty awesome if you're willing to spend the time and figure out the beta. It requires a lot of creative feet and some good dynamism.
I especially like it because it seems to favor shorter people during the crux. Anything to make tall people whine! haha.
