A rare moderate finger crack/flake on the Starving in Stereo boulder, opposite side facing north. Good TR for beginner/novice.

This route leads very nicely on small nuts and cams. Well protected crux. Obviously not for the beginner/novice on lead.

The Kennedy guide rates this route a 10c, btw. 10b doesn't seem inappropriate, though.

Agreed that the gear is good, and the crux well-protected.
