5 out of 5 stars Very fun!

But don't botch your clips.

spooky at second clip, and anchors. Interesting and physical climbing, a good warmup for the wall, and I'll probably climb it every time i'm at Middle Earth

3 out of 5 stars messed up lead rope solo FA

No belayers available after bolting. I stared at the route a long time and decided to go for it. I tied the rope to the bottom bolt and led it with a cinch. It took alot of inching the rope through that thing. A Gri Gri probably would have gone better; squeeze it to pull rope, then release. The cinch lacks a shutting spring to allow that; I had to finger it open and finger it closed, or occasionally push the rope slowly through it.

Quickdraw ladders helped me minimize pulling rope, which would have eaten even more time, unprotected. I'd clip them, move up, reclip the highest draw, then strip the lower draws. Never again.
