Comments: I would call this route a sandbag at 5.10a. I felt it was much harder and two other climbers told me they felt it was 5.11a.

Comments: The starting moves are very height dependent. It can be more straight forward for tall people but there are options for us shorter types as well. The movement on this route is great! It feel very fluid and there are a variety of holds so each person can figure out their own best way to climb this route. It is sustained climbing with only a few marginal rests. It builds until you are tired and you find the true crux right near the end of the climb.
