Have to say this route was not much fun.

Not too bad I would say. I didn't really lay it back, just a pseudo mantle.

I thought this route was kind of challenging for the grade. The pro is decent though. I didn't lieback... but I used both arete features and fancy footwork to get over the overhang and into a good stance. The rest of the route is a bit dirty but if cleaned up the upper section provides decent #1, #2 Camalot sized hand jams.
