5 out of 5 stars Definitely used my stoppers...

... and might not have finished the route without them. Excellent route. Unique.

4 out of 5 stars Great fun, should'a led it, easier than it looks

My second real trad climb above a 5.6, and 30 seconds over potash scared me on the Moab ratings. But a great climb, will definitely lead it on a return trip.

5 out of 5 stars good route

i dont know why everyone says bring stoppers on this route. there's a couple of placements to be sure, but they're not worth mentioning. anyway, a single set to 3" will get a confident leader up this- a 4" piece might be nice for someone at their limit. this is the best route i've climbed at the grade at wall st.
