[Hide Comment] 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

[Hide Comment] 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
