[Hide Comment] Unique and well protected (though committing and a bit heady). This is well worth doing if you like the kind of weird routes. There is a good sized swinging fall potential during the crux, but it is airy and safe if you protect right. I took the fall and it was fine. I felt that being tall probably made this one feel extra hard - it's really scrunchy up there. May 17, 2018
