I have personal issues with this climb. I don't like it. The first couple times I tried to redpoint it, holds broke off up high and I peeled. I don't like doing climbs more than once, and I essentially had to do this climb several times before I got it. Lame.
I definitely do NOT think it's worth 4 stars. I think it's good overall, and that the upper headwall is great. The bottom half is dirty and not super solid. Honestly, I'd give it 2.5 stars, but Christian would be mad at me, so I'm giving it 3.
The crux for me was up high -- definitely the long reach from crimps and bad feet to the jug.

|Cool route for sure. Really fun moves and it seems that it has cleaned up a bit, however still a little dirty, with traffic will clean up more. As for the grade, it is more like 10 something- 10c? Maybe I am getting stronger overnight...|
