3 out of 5 stars 1 hang on TR

My right foot hurt!! :(

Was not my favorite route ever due to the monotonous movement. I found one technique that worked and did that over and over... and then it hurt.

5 out of 5 stars Very good route

Pretty easy if you're comfortable with thin hands. After the first few feet, it's not really #1s, it's 2.5 friends and tight #2s, right up until it pinches down at the top (but then you get feet).
