4 out of 5 stars Fun

First route I did at North Shore thinking it was a 5.9. Was pleasantly surprised to find out true grade upon onsighting. Burly start move for shorter people, cruiser mid section, finding holds at the top was a challenge.

5 out of 5 stars big move, thin moves

Britta and I think it might be worth an upgrade to 10b. The route left of it has a comparable hard opening move, but Britta did it static; foot selection might be key to have it not feel harder than 10a. This route has a much harder finish.

4 out of 5 stars Just crank

hard start move.

Would be a really awesome spot to take photos of anyone on Mines of Moria. A climber topped out on that next to me and I was aching for my camera!

3 out of 5 stars many years ago...

it was very dirty indeed after being put up, but has since cleaned up nicely... sort of like many a dirt bag climber. :)
