3 out of 5 stars Dynosaurus

Interestingly enough, this creature once existed. It roamed the hills drinking malted beverages and sleeping under tarps suspended by strings. While urban sprawl has, as far as scientists know, lead to its demise, its closest relation can still be seen on city street corners licking windows, squabbling and panhandling.

3 out of 5 stars Good entry-level 12

Interesting climbing (5.10+) leading to a very thin, but short, sequence just before the roof. This would be a good route for someone looking to get into 12's, however it is anything but sustained.
Sent it on the second go. Felt like 11+ at Endless Wall.

4 out of 5 stars would take some work

I got on this just to try it, without high hopes. It was fun, but harder than I expected. Hung several times. I did not find a "no hands rest" or a dyno move. I thought the crux was on the upper face, well below the roof.
