Nothing to write home about here. Short but nothing really sweet.

I love it K! If you want to lead this route (anyone) I highly suggest using ONLY the crack for the hands all the way and only "allowing" your left foot to touch the face. This makes it more enjoyable and challenging for sure. At the top of the left-most hand sized crack you will see a thin finger crack that traverses left for a few feet then goes vertical again. Stick with ONLY the cracks, no face holds, and it isnt as boring.
