Fun route. 5.8 until the spicy finish on lead.
The crack can be climbed in so many different ways, you can do it several times in a row and not do the same climb twice!

So much fun, and really varied with a sting in the tail. - thanks for cleaning it up so well.

One of our favorite 5.9 sport climbs in the Upper. Excellent work!

Fun route that changes its character and mood over the last 3-4 bolts. Very balancy and some airy awkward mantles near the top for the grade of 5.9. Beware if your a 5.9 face climber, cuz the top has a very yosemite feel to it. Fun. Couple spots to be careful of ledge fall. Thanks for the route.

It was fun but I thought it was soft for 5.9. Good warm up.
