I almost gave this thing the bomb, but I haven't done it and didn't want to be too harsh. It's awkward and a total one move wonder, but maybe someone out there likes it.

I actually had a pretty good time working this thing. The undercling pocket is really cool and all the holds are pretty friendly. I'm not sure I have anything bad to say about this climb besides it being a bit awkward. Maybe I'm just overly excited because I sent but sticking the deadpoint move was one of the coolest moves I've done this year.

Awesome send Troy! That being said, come on, this climb sucks. In terms of stars, it gets 1 star at best. It's a V-HARD start move followed by something like V2 climbing. Meaning that 99% of people won't do any actual climbing while working it. Also the start feels a little contrived because the R.H. isn't much of a hold and you could reach the next hold I think. But maybe I'm just under-excited because I didn't send haha.
