4 out of 5 stars Good route - a bit run out

Awesome, super technical face climbing. More powerful, sustained, and tiny hand holds than Tonka or Velvet. I guess that's why it's rated 12b. Crazy start beta to technical face that doesn't let up much. Not so sure about the bolting... Decent run out from bolt 2 to 3 (though compared to 3-4 it doesn't feel bad). Large run out from 3 to 4, though the terrain lets up somewhat. I led this once, don't intend on doing it again. It feels pretty significant, especially for the size of the boulder. Not sure you'd deck (if you have a good belayer) but don't want to find out. Besides the bolting, it s a very fun, sustained route. Once you pass the overlap it's easy climbing to the top.
