3 out of 5 stars Tough Start

I found the start very crimpy and was slipping off a lot on the polished feet my first assent - but part of that was the ground was soaked and my feet kept getting muddy at the end of a long day. I tried it a week later and got it the first try. Very balancy first 12 ft and weird start. Recomment having a good spotter or clip the first bolt.
