Loose, poor rock, licheny, hold creak. Sound like fun? Not to me.

Update: as of 2013, it has cleaned up enough to edge to the borderline 0.5 star range.

Sketchy rock, awkward moves, and a dicey approach. No thanks.

Shit route, loose rock, awkward moves, and it's only 2 bolts to anchors. Hop on the 11a just one more bolt line over for a better warm-up.
