Great pocket and edging route! The middle section of the route is delicate climbing, but thoughtful edging will see you through it. The route is characterzied by a slow building pump ,and a 4 bolt section where you have to turn it on. One of my new favorites at the pond. Check it out!

Lots of pocket hunting on this route. Footwork, crimps, broken holds.
