That thing is hard. I'd describe it as spooky 10+ to a burly V3 crux then easy but scary climbing above. Very in your face from the start with a scary deadpoint and big moves. I brought a pad and felt somewhat OK with it.
The crux seems to be height dependent although people with solid footwork might not be bothered.
Candidate for a bolt update? That 1st one is starting to spin, the part of the sleeve that is visible is way rusty and seems bent.

|I took a couple falls on that bolt figuring out the move a few weeks ago. I'm sure it's okay, but I was pretty relieved each time it caught. A very worthy candidate for replacement IMO. It looks like it would be easy to pull and redrill the same hole. This one should definitely be on the list. It's a great variation with a big move.|
