3 out of 5 stars Crux near the diagonal crack

There are some fairly good foot placement, and some fancy holding onto the side of the cracks while keeping your body weight pulled to either side of the crack. Also, the guidebook shows the route going straight up, then the crack makes the route sharply start going to the right. Try to set your anchor a little more towards the middle of that diagonal crack, instead of way over to the right of the route that looks like the top of the diagonal crack.

4 out of 5 stars Concur

I agree with the previous notes. The moves out of the upper pocket are challenging. Getting there isnt too tough.

4 out of 5 stars Romeo's Left

Really a one move wonder. The side pull out of the upper pocket is a 5.8+ move, but the rest is really straightforward. More fun than Romeo's Ladder

3 out of 5 stars Nice

Maybe not quite up to the consistent quality of Romeo's Ladder, but the moves through the pockets to the upper diagonal are pretty sweet and push the upper end of the 5.8 rating.
