4 out of 5 stars Almost a one-move-wonder.

5.6 or 5.7 climbing to a terrible crimp, and a decent sidepull. Raise your feet, and leap higher than you can. Then you'll hit the next left hand. Catch yourself one-handed, then find your feet again, and continue up the rest of the climb which is 5.10. There's another smaller balancey crux later on, but after the jump, the hard part's over.

The next day, I got on Narcissus, and was reminded of the difference between a single 5.12a move, and sustained 5.12a climbing.

5 out of 5 stars Appropriately named

This is mostly 5.9 climbing with a tough one-punch knockout crux right in the middle. Very enjoyable.
