Cool route. Neat and varied climbing with a wild flake start and nice pocketed headwall.

There are always really good holds for the hands and feet, and it is less than vertical. Makes a great warmup for the area.

This is a quality route (much better than its neighbor - Route Fluffer). Fairly sustained climbing from top to bottom with no real single crux.
