Pretty fun route! Fall in the first two bolts could be a bit questionable so move carefully. Pockets and some stuff at the top could be wet after a rainstorm. Also, you'll probably have to stray from the bolt line a bit, but don't let the chalk super far out fool you. May 20, 2016

Felt much harder than a 5.10a, more like a 5.10c. I like technical slab and I sent it, but the moves are harder than most 10b's I've done. Also, a lot of the chalked up holds to the right are red herrings - stay as close to the bolt line as possible, otherwise be prepared for a sketchy traverse. Jun 11, 2018

If you fall from first bolt, you will probably hurt yourself badly because it's placed low. Watch the belayer's position since there's a gap between the base of the wall/belayer's rock. Follow the bolt like (like Ven said, many red herring chalk marks to the right) to avoid dangerous falls. Jun 12, 2018

Yeah, we saw people do some wild stuff on chalked up holds out right on this route. Other than immediately before you clip the first bolt, there's really no need to leave the bolt line. It was raining pretty hard, but this stayed shockingly dry. Jul 10, 2018
