There's a whole lot of nothing to hold on to. If this were a vertical face it would easily be in the 11 range. However with the much less than vertical characteristics, this is a technical friction route.

I agree. There is not a lot to hold onto. But it is very good for practicing some technical moves and balancing. The granite was tough for me to get used to, but I will tackle this again.

The route essentially breaks down into two different boulder problems. The lower one is classic slab with one big under cling and a few crimps. High foot placements and the such, but really fun. Once you get onto the shelf you can easily rest, but making it over the bulge is pretty interesting. I was leading this route and I took a long time trying to figure out my sequence without veering off the beta. It all comes down to a single side pull and really trusting your feet. If the massive shelf weren't half way up this route for an easy rest, I'd give this route another star. Still highly recommend though!

I really enjoyed this route. Really sparse left of bolts, but going right will get you to some crimps. Fun footwork on the bottom.
