|The "good" of this route is definitely the start. Girly hands fit perfect with a 2" clean crack, fantastic jams and featured nuggets or dishes for the feet. Transitioning through the "bad" isn't really all that bad. The "ugly", although short, works you over. Nice route, nearly as grainy as the boulders at the base. Fun stuff for any WideFriday™|

The gear description is totally accurate on this route. I did it with only a new #5 camelot and burried it back in the "ugly" part.
the Ugly part was awesome. I thought turning the corner was the technical crux on this, but protectable.
This is a totally fun route that I would recommend to anyone in the area that wants to get a good pump on some interesting climbing!

|The "ugly" was torture! I must have spent ten minutes on this very short section. I should have worn long sleeves though, that rock just bites into your tasty bbq chicken wings. This thing was harder than Make or Break Flake (.10b) up at the white cliffs of dover.|
