Comments: For someone who is 5'6", it is a huge dyno off of the left sidepull crimp. To me, it felt V7-8.

Comments: My beta is to go right hand into the pocket, use a right heel scum on the bulge to go up left hand to a pebble/crystal. Crimp the crap out of that, and jump the right foot up on the bulge, then go left to the mono, and immediately gun for the jug right hand.

Comments: No kneebar needed for the sit start. Just pull up onto that left foot and gun for the sidepull. Fun problem.

Comments: Is this pretty much a lay down start off a slopey ledge then a big move up and left to a shallow 2 finger pocket?

Comments: I didn't experience any loose rock, but it was a bit dirty. Definitely worth doing and a fun climb. The rock is pretty bomber, but some have a bit of dirt and dust on it.

Comments: With fat fingers, it makes using a couple of the slots next to impossible. This would feel a couple grades easier with thinner tips.

Comments: Was there today, and the ankle breaking boulder is not there anymore. FYI. It looked like it had been rolled down the hill.

Comments: The block is definitely loose and is ready to go. I was terrified to climb on it, but there is no way around. It. If you tap it, you can visually see movement, and I can't see how it is still attached to the wall. I will not be getting on this climb again until this is resolved. The other problem is that the underside of the block forms a razor edge that would certainly cut the rope if it did come off. This thing is scary.

Comments: I felt the bottom was V2/3. Not a great warmup as the crux is off the ground.

Comments: BETA warning----No dyno needed. I am 5'6", and I just got a small right hand crimp undercling and got my feet high. It was a stretch but very slow and static.

Comments: Both the 3rd and 4th bolts wiggle a little, and not the hangers, but the actual bolts. Probably in some bad rock and need glue-ins instead.
