This is a highly underrated route. I'm glad we hopped on it even though it hasn't gotten much praise. It's got some great juggy boulder-moves at the bottom and a tricky finish. Will come back and rock this thing next time. Awesome stuff.

Awesome little route. Basically two boulder problems stacked on top of each other, with a rest in between. V1 or so at the bottom to get you up the steep initial wall, then V3ish as you get a little delicate followed by a bit burly.

Agreed, this is a great route! Definitely worth doing at the very least. Seemed much easier than 11d though.
