3 out of 5 stars Ripple

Kinda spicy lead with the polished feel. Nice belay stances - just wished they were a bit closer together. Could get some gear in the opening crack if you don't like the run out (the safety rating reflects that w/o gear in the crack you're looking at a nice ride to the base of the dome...)

4 out of 5 stars 5.9+ and growing

polished rock makes a fun route. Really makes you trust your smearing ability. Not much of anything to get you to the 2nd bolt. Strong 5.8 moves from there on. A couple of small tricams will protect the first flake.

4 out of 5 stars Fun High First Bolt

Nice slab climb with a fun high first bolt off a great flake. If not for that run out I would say it more of a 5.8

4 out of 5 stars Excellent

Great climb. Best I've done on the backside yet (haven't done too many). Thin cruxy move at the first bolt, where I slipped. Don't normally give + ratings but it may be a 9+ move. A couple of 9 moves throughout the remainder of climb but mostly 5.8.
