This was a heck of a route. I love this whole area. I haven't really found another spot in the canyon quite like it. The real business of the climb is pretty much bolts 7 and 8, and you get a great rest after that. I loved the finish off a really small, shallow two finger pocket. Probably a three star climb that gets a fourth star for its amazing location.
