4 out of 5 stars Not as easy as I thought it would be

The guidebook had this as an 8, but it seemed a little stiffer to me. Maybe I just need better balance, either way it's fun.

4 out of 5 stars Stiff Start

Technical, balancing climb. Thought it was closer to a 9+ or 10. Fantastic friction, great feet, and make sure you find the second left facing flake.

3 out of 5 stars Swimming with Karp

5.8?? The most technical 5.8 i've ever climbed. At the New it would go at 10a.
