Awesome climb, this route and the 5.7 to the left of it were the most fun routes in this section of the wall. The 5.7 (although easier) might actually be even more fun.

I have come to like this climb quite a bit. A little tuggish and the finish can be rather stiff if you have shortish reach. Definitely 2.5 stars in my book.

3rd bolt was spinning. Tightened with a nut tool.

Awesome climb. I was really pleasantly surprised by this one today. Fun movement and some interesting holds.

Is it possible to do the first overhang with "style and grace"? I had to get all ugly on it: an alpine knee and lots of body friction!

Nick, after you clip the second bolt, feel left to find a HUGE jug just over the lip of the overhang. Step right foot high, reach to almost the back of the first ledge to find a nice incut for your right hand. Knee(s) not required. :)

Thanks, Soon. Why do I always seem to miss the big holds? (Like the big mailbox slot on Underdog.)
