Strong 2 stars. Reminded me of Chihuahua. If the crux is the move around the corner at the start, it's not awkward at all the way I do it...it's nice.

Have you guys tried to trundle the block about 20 feet up ? It looks a bit spooky and would be instant death to belayer in the admittedly very unlikely case that it pitched.

We banged on it when we drilled the route, seemed pretty solid. But if you can get it to go, trundle away.

I third the chihuahua comment. I was there today and that rock seemed solid. (I was rapping and my partner was at the anchors). Maybe I am just a weakling.

Watched a tall guy do the "crux" today. He said it was 5.8 the way he did it. He kept telling me to "just put your foot up on the ledge", Bastard!

I'll jump on that Chihuahua Power bandwagon too. Fun crux down low that feels pretty exposed and committing. Very fun route!

Very fun. Thought I was going to have major issues if the whole route was like the first committing move, but then things eased up. I like this one!
