3 out of 5 stars Better with gear

Used yellow TCU for the crack below the first bolt. Blue TCU would probably fit better. Stout crux for a 5.6.

3 out of 5 stars Fun short route, but taller than it looks

As is so often the case the route is taller than it looks from he ground. Crux is getting to the first bolt. Upper slab is easier but feels a little more exposed. Good bolts.
