Good route! Solid rock, very very technical sequences.

Striking thin black line as the name would indicate, with a thin powerful crux. It felt harder than anything I have done yet. I will see how it feels on the redpoint.

Great route up a very obvious black streak. Good footwork and a cool head makes this route no harder than .12b in my opinion, glad to have sent on my last day!
