[Hide Comment] Thanks to whomever bailed at the crux and left their draw. Getting some booty first thing in the AM was an exciting start to the day! Jun 27, 2020

[Hide Comment] 5.9+??? Wtf no. No no. This is solid 5.10, and significantly harder than its next-door neighbor, What's Left. Apr 9, 2021
