3 out of 5 stars fun flake for new climber like me

I'm so new to climbing - this was my first flake route. Pretty fun route, but we mainly climbed it to get TR'ed for Texas Direct.

3 out of 5 stars nice view on top

start was toughest part - tougher than you'd expect from grade. easy cruise after that. end is similar to beginning, but a little more positive and easier to protect (assuming you have very big gear). the route swallows big gear - and rope drag is an issue.
