Moderate climb with interesting moves. The moves to climb the corner crazy fun. One of the better lines on the wall IMO.

Looks like a pile but it's surprisingly good.

Have to agree with Christian. Steep jugs, cool shallow corner then lower angle arete climbing.

A hard finish can be had by moving left out of the shallow corner to the top of the pillar to the left and finishing on the the new finish to Hairy Interlude. This was jokingly referred to as Hair Extension 5.11c/d.

Bottom 2/3rd is super fun ***'s. top 1/3rd still good but brings overall down to 2 stars. Great climb.

What a unique and enjoyable climb! Personally I thought the highlight was the strangeness - the pod halfway up is very unique, and if you employ some chimney/off-width/groveling technique, the upper section is also pretty cool. Do this and Speed Racer and you'll be in a great mood.
