4 out of 5 stars Pump those biceps

Cool climb with some arm intensive moves (hence the route name). All in all pretty easy climb for a tall guy, just use those laybacks on the crack and it goes easy.

4 out of 5 stars Arm not busted...

I've had people tell me that Armbuster was a 5.9+, but I feel like I've climbed 5.7's at GF's that were harder. Definitely worth climbing...very good crack for a few laybacks...
