|I like this route more than I like Hotter than Hell. Great moves, good gear and a nice new direct start. Well worth it!|

My friend and i climbed this route today, what a full value 5.10! I would recommend this one to anyone solid on 5.9 slab through the 5.10b/c grades.
There are a couple brief rests, some good feet (a few anyway) allow you to stop and route find because in the sun especially the overall route finding can be just a little tricky, climbs great though! There are some older bolts well up the route that I originally aimed for only to see a new set a bolts more left. Aside from a brief rest or two its 5.10 slab/face nearly full length 70 meter climb.
Makes you think, work for it and is about as rewarding as it gets for consistent 5.10 slab/face climbing. Get it!

|It's the same exact style as Hotter than Hell, but half a grade harder. It's well protected with almost all bolts, and just a few pieces of gear. If you are wondering, this is a true modern 5.9+, definitely not the old school 5.9+. Nothing to be intimidated by if you are solid on Hotter than Hell! Get on it|
