Mild for the grade and also super good. Quality edges the whole way. Standard rack will suffice. Shiny new bolts up top as of July 2016. Jul 9, 2016

First couple of moves are the crux and it's not very hard for 5.9, then it's sweet hand jams and blocky, in-cut, huge edges. There are currently bolts on top, but no chains. Aug 21, 2014
