4 out of 5 stars Seemed a little tough for a 5.10a

Since this seems to be a popular route, and it has been quite some time since its FA, it might have grown harder. My partner and I were both in agreement that pitch #1 was closer to 5.10c, and pitch #2 a 5.10b.

In either case, it was a very fun, and sustained route with some nice crimpers, a few slopers and some careful edging.

3 out of 5 stars Roar of the Greasepaint

Combined the two pitches with one 70m rope, raps fine with same. Fun mantle move to start, then a bit sketchy to easy face climbing. Not overly recommended.
