This route deserves more stars than it gets... there are two ways to climb it. In the one photo you can see the traditional style. You power up from bad hands to better hands using strength, and whatever feet you can manage (as you can see Erica in the photo has her right leg up high right). When climbing it this way the holds are sharp, and it requires a lot of strength. There are, however, some amazing feet underneath that mini-roof. If you work your way left using those feet into a toe hoook the grab for the good holds can be made, without using the sharp hand holds, or a lot of power. When climbed this way it's definitely a great little boulder problem!

-edit-
I've heard the top out doesn't allow the use of the boulder/arete from Disinformation (the problem to the left). This makes the topout considerably harder, but IMO doesn't change the grade. Just makes the problem convoluted. Jan 8, 2018
