Description [Suggest Change]
I got on this thinking it was "Adult Supervison," the 5.10a to the left. I was also thinking I would warm up on it. Boy was I in for a surprise. This has a very technical, slabby start. I fell a couple times right after clipping the first bolt. I would recommend stick clipping. It is an awkward start and clip. Or at least I was awkward on it. After the second bolt, you have to do a tough mantel onto a good ledge. Then you get a very run out section on easy terrain which could be protected with a 1" cam. Overall, this is a good climb but not the warm-up I thought it was going to be. Needless to say, I was warmed up after this.

Quickdraws and 1 cam.
