Really fun climb. Has great holds the whole way up, but the movement takes some thinking and it is extremely pumpy with one move in the middle I thought was kind of tough. Fight the pump!

Now perma-drawed. Just right of the perma-drawed Ziplock. Shares last bolt and anchors. There's not a bad hold on this whole route. Has opportunities for knee-bars. Very straightforward and thuggish; not a lot of thinking required, you just have to be able to hold on!
