The begin moves are the best. Also the finish is cool because the change in rock texture. Probably one of the best routes on the wall...

5.9+ is fair for this climb, the hardest moves are at the beginning and is eases up a lot after 20 feet.

Best route at this crag, mostly because it is the only one that is remotely sustained. It is sustained 5.8 to 5.9+ and then has a few 5.10- opening moves. Good safe lead for climber working into the 5.10 spectrum.

A solid, technical crux to get you up above second bolt. Eases up above second bolt. Still a couple of 5.7 move, I think. A semi-roof near top. Send it!
