It's a great climb, little run out at the top but the falls are safe. Keeps you guessing the whole way up. Nice and sustained without being overly pumpy.

another awkward, weird rock climb on this wall. i guess if you like slopey, insecure, cryptic climbing it could be fun....

that said, i would recommend stick clipping the first bolt from the ramp- the first move is a bit dicey.

One of my all time favorite sport climbs. The climbing is amazing, varied and full value - the run out at the top is over easy ground (5.6), but makes for an exhilarating finish. There are 2 distinct 10c cruxes, and if you get off route you might find it awkward (i.e. slopers and crimps), but if you get it right (huge pockets and side pulls) it is awesome and unlike anything else in the area. Beta: climb through the small roofs, not around them! There is no need to stick clip the first bolt, just climb the easy 4th class ramp and clip from there.
