Agreed, I felt like the #1 crux was pretty hard for 5.9, plus somewhat committing on the fixed small nut. The start on #1 had this big, mini-fridge block that completely shifted as I pulled on it. After finishing the route, we went back to see if we could just trundle it, but it seems to have chocked itself back in. Pretty scary. Otherwise a fun variation with good climbing and good pro is to start on #1 and finish on #2. Jun 12, 2017

#3 is also great. Powerful roof and fun traverse. I found the crux bulge of #1 to be hard for 5.9. Aug 1, 2016
