5 star line for sure. Soft for the grade but a fun OS for sure.Plenty of rests all over it and it's not that steep. But just enough for clean falls which is perfect.

Having done a bunch of 12s at Ten Sleep and Wild Iris, I fail to understand the hype of this route. I found it hard for the grade, and a couple of the pockets bit me. Ouch! Amazing wall though.
