3 out of 5 stars Got on this for the name alone! Unsure of my emotions after.

This route is...weird. There are movements on this route that you'll be hard-pressed to find on any other route in Reimers - especially on limestone. I actually did a legitimate hand jam or two. The layback start is exceptionally awkward and different per my own constant quote during the send of "This is weird...why am I doing this? Screw this on trad gear!"

I think it is probably 10c due to the effort of clipping the third bolt. Don't blow that one.

scary scenario if a fall happens prior to clipping #3. be mindful, prudent and safe.

4 out of 5 stars hard!

Not sure I've ever sent this. I suck at it. Maybe it's graded too low. I collected few opinions; Chris Barton agreed with 10a and climbs it well. Joel wasn't sure: anywhere from 10a to 10d. I'm going to propose a 10b for the sake of argument, though the book says 10a, spend more time on it and collect more opinions.
