Technical and interesting moves and protection denote the route's lower half while the upper half's mini-roof gives this climb its 3rd star and its + rating

Our friend did it for his first lead, no real problems and he felt confident the entire way despite it being about 11PM and dark as sin out. Lots of fun to climb with only headlamps.
