If you're an idiot like me, you'll do this really difficult and balancey heel hook at the crux and people will look at you like you're retarded for making it that much harder. Then they'll hike up it and face the crux head-on and cruise it and tell you the crux was down low.

It has been many years since I was on this route but I remember the crux being in the upper third of the route for me and it is both powerful and somewhat awkward. I thought the route bears a little resemblance to Bourbon Sauce.

Two or three interesting cruxes and a pumpy finish. I thought it deserved more than the two stars it gets in the guidebook. Would certainly be a three-star route if it weren't right next to Scenic Adult and Tony the Tiger.
