4 out of 5 stars really fun

If you climb the wide it is harder than 5.9, to keep it at 5.9 use the couple of face holds on the right while lying off of the edge of the wide crack

5 out of 5 stars Smooth Operator

Every once in a while you got to taste some humble pie. Fell out of the fist crack, lowered, and then fired the rig. Regardless, this is one of the most full value 5.9s at the New! Fun moves, great pro, and you get to practice some fist crack. Get on it!
