4 out of 5 stars Deflower Power

This route came together nicely for me. It was a surprise to send it on my third try. The crux was figuring out how to pull the bulge boulder problem at the start. After that its pump management to the anchors.

Most recommend stick clipping the 2nd bolt which is quite difficult from the ground. Bring someone tall with you.

4 out of 5 stars *

Fun, obvious, straightforward route. Should have onsighted but waited around too long and got pumped out by the last bolt. Sent second go. The beginning boulder problem is the crux for sure but it's not as hard as the bouldering found at the end of Mario's or the beginning of Yertle. The whole route is consistent and pumpy throughout.

4 out of 5 stars another 12 project

The start is very boulder and powerful...the rest is fine so long as you are able to manage the pump from the start.
