3 out of 5 stars Beautiful

Great line up the wall. A bit insecure at times but overall super fun crack climbing, you can really get your feet involved if you commit to staying in the crack.

3 out of 5 stars Inside my head.

My head is playing games with me. Took a few practice falls on this route as well as a screamer.

4 out of 5 stars Climb It

Great route,rated G, you can pop a cam in anywhere on this thing. I left the ground a little under prepared though and ended up running out of gear less than half way up....NO idea what I was thinking and I had a lot of small stuff that was totally useless. Nuts at the bottom are nice, but then it's all 2's, 3's.....found a .75 and .5 up high but would have been easier with the right gear. Sweet climb.
