4 out of 5 stars i don't normally log

routes that I hang or bail off, but this was memorable. I'm trying to get over a fear of wide climbing, so I got on this. The moves off the ground are burly and hard and then it gets better. Take a lot of big gear if you want to protect it well...if you took 2#3 2#4 2#5 and a 6, you could easily use them all!

5 out of 5 stars Nice crack

Followed up my partner on toprope. Good crack climbing with a decent variety of widths.

3 out of 5 stars Very cool wide primer

Finally came back and got back on this. Low crux, right off the ground, is quite a challenge. Pushed a cam for almost the entire top half with leg and knee in the crack. Really fun!
