I Tr'd this once hoping for a good 5.12 to headpoint. I found that the good holds tended to lead off to the sides and onto the other routes making forced 5.12 climbing.

I thought the climbing on this was pretty good, especially higher up. You're right though, the good holds tend to lead off to the sides, at least at the crux. Anybody know how close you can get to HHG and still be on route?

Good little face climb. It's kind of squeezed in there, but the climbing is really fun. Typical thin and hard DL style pulling.
