Description:

The start is a boulder problem, powerful and then a tad technical. Nothing too difficult, the grade is pretty soft, after the beggining there is no move harder than 5.10c. Only gets 1 star in the guide book but I think it deserves at least one more.

4 out of 5 stars Soft for the grade, but fun.

Strung up a TR on this yesterday and gave it a whirl. Feels soft for the supposed 5.12a designation in the guidebook, I got up it without too much issue and I consider myself a 5.11 climber. I don't know if it is soft or if I am just getting better at climbing ;) Will lead it next time for sure. The crux is basically from the ground to the second bolt which involves negotiating a 2 foot wide horizontal joint in the rock, but really it wasn't that hard to figure out. The second half is like 5.9 to the top. Agree that it deserves more than one star.
