I was rather disappointed with this climb as it had a 3 star rating. I was expecting a fun, challenging route and mostly I just found it to be challenging.
It could have just been the heat of the day but I found that the majority of the holds were just slimy with chalk to the point where it made it difficult for me to use the holds. I found the best holds were ones not used by previous climbers because of this reason. I did manage to struggle up the climb and found it to be very sequency (as I plain just avoided some holds like the plague). I found the crux to be clipping bolt 4 as the holds below that bolt were horrible and the holds just above were just slightly more usable. Generally speaking this has been my least favorite in the Overlook Area.
