4 out of 5 stars three crux beauty

Tech crux, pump crux, puzzle crux...none of them too bad once you figure out what you're doing. Was very useful to watch my partner on this first. Overall difficulty is probably reach/height related, ranging from 11b-11d.

5 out of 5 stars Nice route

I thought this climb was good fun, if a little soft in the grade. My onsight attempt I did not see the crimp to navigate the first crux, so I took some falls trying to figure out a harder way to use the slopey rail out left. Got it second go, and it felt easy.

5 out of 5 stars Awsome!

What a great route. I had to sit at the crux move. Definitely need to go back and Red Point this one.
