Awesome send Troy! That being said, come on, this climb sucks. In terms of stars, it gets 1 star at best. It's a V-HARD start move followed by something like V2 climbing. Meaning that 99% of people won't do any actual climbing while working it. Also the start feels a little contrived because the R.H. isn't much of a hold and you could reach the next hold I think. But maybe I'm just under-excited because I didn't send haha. Aug 30, 2017

I actually had a pretty good time working this thing. The undercling pocket is really cool and all the holds are pretty friendly. I'm not sure I have anything bad to say about this climb besides it being a bit awkward. Maybe I'm just overly excited because I sent but sticking the deadpoint move was one of the coolest moves I've done this year. youtube.com/watch?v=-XjJyp-… Aug 18, 2017

I almost gave this thing the bomb, but I haven't done it and didn't want to be too harsh. It's awkward and a total one move wonder, but maybe someone out there likes it. Dec 21, 2009
