This route was really fun! I found the first 10 feet to be pretty difficult, but my crack technique is lacking. The gear is great; I never placed the #4 Camalot I brought up, but I found sizes 1-3 to be quite useful. I took a small (TR) fall after placing my second piece (#1) and it held. For me, this was significantly harder than Silverfish, and it seemed on par with smooth operator. Like I said though, my crack technique is lacking. I have a feeling that a little OW technique with the feet at the start of this climb might make it feel a lot easier. Jan 21, 2014
