4 out of 5 stars Damn it!~

Popped trying to get established in the left hand crack to start. Ended up face climbing in from the right. Not sure how to start directly up the big wide left crack!?!? Sweeeeeeet climbing above the awkward, hard, sketchy start.

4 out of 5 stars Hard start but the rest is awesome

The start of this is like a V5 boulder problem, but when you get through it it opens up to a nice crack. Further up things get a little tricky with some interesting lieback moves. This route can be very bit as exciting for 2nd as well as the leader depending on how well you protect it!
