3 out of 5 stars runout over slab and tree...otherwise a great route.

I didn't project it to determine the easiest way, but in a brief couple seconds ended up doing a fist jam, foot jam/lock, and finger jam (I think in that order) solve it. Stellar climbing.

Noticably easier than Hilti Highway and Unknown 5.10b (which I'd upgrade).

It should be retro'd for four bolts, moving bolt 2 down in the process. With the tree, this is no place to get cute with unnecessary runouts.

2 out of 5 stars Hmm, Yes and No like Mexico

I do fondly remember runout bolts down south, but these aren't that bad... except there are two trees you will most likely hit if you pop off. I'd recommend wearing a helmet just in case.

Got the juices flowing, trying to figure out the sequence.

4 out of 5 stars Yep, high first clip and run out... ah, visions of Potrero

The secret is the middle finger mono, high feet, and palming the block... it's fun to figure out.

2 out of 5 stars Wouldn't want to lead it

Got it on toprope, bolts are spaced far apart and like the guidebook says, there are alot of opportunities to deck. Not my favorite sort of route.
