Climbed on Side Effects on 2nd of Jan. 2013. Had an amazing time. The lower section leading to the roof is a 10a with a under cling move thats kind of fun then get scrunchy stuff traversing to the right.From there it is a high mantle type move with nothing but crap for a slope to pull yourself up and over. If you don't stick it prepare for a nasty whipper. I TR'ed it and my falls freaked the heck of people as you swing 20-30 out off the face. Once you clear the over hanging mantle, it cruises at about 10b with lots of dirt in as this route isn't climbed much.

Personally, I like the route, though there are a lot of classics to play on. Many look at this route and don't waste their time since the day when a key hold broke off just above the overhang.
