3 out of 5 stars Ouch

This route was sharp and sustained the whole way. The jug in the beginning is misleading, this route is a crimpfest! Still, it was a good route, after blowing the onsight I had to try it two more times to get it. The trick was just to treat it like a boulder problem and go through it as fast as I could. Hanging out on those crimps too long is just a very bad idea.

5 out of 5 stars has The Jug of Power

One of the few routes whose hold inspired me to name it: the low Jug of Power. Finishing the route was intense. This was a hard project for me, with precise beta the whole way. I recall picking a bolt 3 clip using the harder hand, just to rest it for the rest of the route. There's also (early on) a bit of left-shoulder in, right hand reaching high and behind you, but IDK if this ended up being crucial.
