4 out of 5 stars Needless...

to say it took me several attempts to actually send this route. Today I realized that there are a lot more holds than i thought there were (thanks chalk marks). Highly recommend this climb to anyone...

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

I really wore myself out trying to climb this before i found a not super obvious handhold that made my world a thosand times easier. One of my favorite climbs. Lots of SUPER positive stuff, although you really have to work for it. I highly recommend, and because of the location, you won't be too crowded.
