A fun climb but still a bit loose. Took a fall around 3rd bolt when a hold broke off. That area is a little grainy.

Fun route. And a notch easier than Sweat Band. Very well protected.

Fun route, pretty easy for the grade, but good nonetheless. It is now feeling pretty clean especially for the area.

After scrambling to the first bolt on easy ground the route is engaging and definitely has your attention. Somewhat of a squeeze job but you don't really use any of the crack or holds from it's neighbor to the left. The upper 1/3 gets your attention and has some thought provoking moves. A nice addition to the area, nice line and fun climbing. Thanks guys!

Easy climbing up to the break where a good 0.75" or 1" cam can be placed in a horizontal just down and left from the first bolt. Once on the wall proper the climbing is well-protected with a definite crux getting to the 3rd bolt in the lighter colored rock.
Fun climbing but the rock quality is not the best and it seems likely the climb will only get harder as the rock at the crux wears away with more traffic.
