We found that the crack above the "false lieback" was more the size of a BD 3 than a 2, so bring a couple or you might risk a run-out. Oct 19, 2016

such a fun climb for the grade. I used a #3 to protect the crux for me. Dec 26, 2012

For some reason I felt this climb was a LOT easier than Nutcracker. It felt like a 5.2 rating to me. This would be an excellent climb for a beginner leader since there is pro everywhere. May 22, 2011
