4 out of 5 stars Warm-up

Nice route. I really enjoyed the crux moves. It was pumpy, but mostly because it was the first route of the day.

5 out of 5 stars Easier than other 5.11a's a the New...

..but very fun. A defined crux down low followed by pumpy 5.10 climbing with long moves from jug to jug.

4 out of 5 stars very fun route

a bit soft for the grade. No real technical or powerful moves. Pretty much jug to jug, with some longer moves. It gets the grade for fighting the pump

4 out of 5 stars not sure what all the fuss is about

Good route, but not great. Warmed up on it and found it pumpy....maybe that's why I didn't think it was a classic.
