I onsighted this over the weekend and thought it was harder than Deep Dish - even though it looks like a cruise from the ground. The start is one 3 finger crimper with nothing but a few nubbins for feet - a 5.8 one-handed move right off the ground. Why else would you place a first bolt 5 feet up? The climb eases a bit after a few more bolts and the moves are mostly slabby. There are more difficulties in the final upper sections - although you can escape some of this by intentional or unintentional overlapping with Deep Dish - the two climbs are very close together at that point. It's a decent addition, although the number of bolts and especially the placement of the final route bolt makes me suspect it was bolted on rappel. We thought it should be called Thin Crust since it's so thin at the start. Very well protected at 9 bolts compared to Deep Dish's 5. Jun 29, 2014

A bit of a squeeze job on a climb anywhere wall. First bolt is about 62" off the ground. Can't miss it. May 21, 2014
