Description:

There's a goofy little roof at the beginning that was more awkward for me to get over than my partner for some reason. Between the first and second bolts was pretty touchy, but after that the climbing eases up some. As far as the name goes ... the only thing I noticed was that it was nice to have long arms to clip the first bolt!

4 out of 5 stars Fun

The first half on the black rock is fun. The second half has very long runouts.

2 out of 5 stars dont have to be tall

needs new hardware, along with everything else at the crag.
unnecessarily runout at the end, sure the holds are there but you can't control when a hold breaks

3 out of 5 stars Cold

Holds are smaller when it's 38 degrees. Fun climb, maybe because of that added challenge. Interesting choices in bolt placement.
