4 out of 5 stars Sweeet!

Got on this climb after shooting photos of a friend's send. Great movement and just scary enough to keep you making good decisions.

Great line. If the route was longer the reachy moves would have gotten the best of me.

3 out of 5 stars Best thing I Did at DL

Saw this in an ancient guidebook as a 10. It was clear pretty early that it was a little harder than that. Hung twice on it, but was pretty glad that it was only twice. Pumpy stuff, weird jam at crux. Really sketchy rock on the top out. The pigeons nesting in The Grotto climb were making angry noises at me the whole way up.
