The mantle move is pretty awkward but also pretty cool once you figure it out. The upper crack is thin but offers a nice finger lock down low. Fun stuff!

That mantle is absolutely bizarre and hard for me but it really is a fun, unique sequence. The top finger crack is really cool too and is the crux for some (shorter) people, but to me it seemed noticeably easier than the mantle.

The route name is a bit of a misnomer: 5.11- is more like it.
