3 out of 5 stars Fun warmup

I ran it a couple times using the crack and then staying to the right of the crack. I prefer the crimpy balancy mid section over the crack but they both were decent and I think about the same ratings.

3 out of 5 stars Thin

Thin start leads up to some good holds and traverse a little left and around some bouldery bulges.

face variant. Bottom is fun, top not so much.
