5 out of 5 stars Aggressive climb

Pumpy first pitch. IMO that's where the business is on this route.

Good route. Second pitch is easier than .11 if you go left instead of straight up. A bit exciting as you could factor-2 onto a sketchy belay. First 2 pitches (we did them as one) seemed a bit burly for .10-, but maybe that was because I was carrying all of Paolo's camera equipment. He stayed on top to shoot photos of Chrissy and I (well, mainly just Chrissy) on Easter Island as the sun was going down.
