Such a great climb! If you're in the area don't miss this one even if you climb harder than this grade. Super fun climbing and would make a good warm-up. Pretty steep but on great holds the whole way.

When I was there a few years ago there was some chill music floating up from the houses below while leading this - made for an awesome, memorable vibe.
