3 out of 5 stars Placement?

Not sure where you would place gear on this thing. Maybe if some people quit chopping bolts this would be a good and safe lead.

4 out of 5 stars Athletic Start

We chose the 5.10 start off the arette... athletic and fun but no good way to protect... I'll stick to top roping this one.

3 out of 5 stars Bat Crack

Shares the same start as Star Babies, and Tar Babies, kind of a difficult first move, pure dead point, start to a full upward extension and an almost perfect slotting.

4 out of 5 stars a really fun climb

I thought this was a little easy for a 5.9 but it is a really fun route nonetheless. It's nice to have several alternate starts to mix it up as well.
