5 out of 5 stars Great Climb

I surprisingly got the onsight on this climb. Every move felt natural. The start is a bit exciting and the whole climb is good.

Red Point Red Point ascent by: kvochatzer on 2008-10-12 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars powerful and amazing

Great climb straight from the beginning with a pull-up on smallest fingers and very little feet whatsoever, then crank on through more hands to the second bolt. Very fun. One fall from essentially an onsight, then TR'd it on pumped out arms after a very long weekend of trailwork and climbing. I'll come back for the redpoint.

i red pointed it a week later on my next visit
