4 out of 5 stars Sweet climb!

While the crack finish was slimy today from all the sweaty traffic - it was a great climb to lead. Very worth doing if in the area.

4 out of 5 stars TRed wish I'd led it.

Felt a pretty smooth to me. Definitely not a hard 5.7. Really fun moves with interesting finish
