The crux of this route was really fun, and I really like the rock of this climb, especially compared to all the other rock in Pine Canyon. This route takes all the balance required in not breaking the grips on other routes in Pine canyon, and actually forces you to do interesting moves.
What I didn't like about this climb is that the top anchor is way over the moss covered top slab. I think it should be bolow this, near the sketchy fifth bolt.
sketchymon. Too much moss on the top! The route kicked ass other than that.
Requires a little more flexibility than you need to climb a 5.11b slab climb.
The fifth bolt sucks!

|I agree with above comment, awesome route but anchors are way too high over the lip and too much moss on the final slab making it precarious and a fall perilous.|
