This route is amazingly good: sustained five ten movement with footholds exactly where you would want them. It almost seems like you're climbing a route that was set to flow smoothly. This could potentially be a replacement warm up for the magic light/overboard routine. I've just never had the guts to break out of the mould and change things up.

In my opinion, this a much more fun and more intuitive line than Blue Light Special to the left.

Our group's opinion was unanimous - this is a more fun, technical puzzle route than blue light special. Great route.
