This route has several biggish key hand/foot holds that flex when pulled or stepped-on. Please make sure your belayer (and yourself) wears a helmet! Jun 20, 2017

If you're not feeling strong at this rating, a stick clip for the first bolt might be cool. The start is a little tricky. Sep 5, 2011

This climb has a few tricky moves through the middle. Don't be afraid to step to the right or left to adjust your line. Also, the anchors are not in an ideal placement. If I were 6'0" it might not be a problem, but it's nearly a .10ish move to get to the anchors, and then you have nothing to really stand on. Very awkward. Aug 29, 2010
