This route was super fun. Still a little dirty and has some loose rock to come off but a great addition to the Tall Cliffs. Does it really need to be a mixed route though? Making everyone carry one piece of gear up the route seems silly. Especially since the crack only takes tiny gear. I would give it at least 3 stars if it wasn't for that. Can protect that section with nuts or small cams (0.1-0.2).

I did several routes in this area one day and this one was the best. A very nice new addition that should clean up nicely with more traffic. One or two TCU's protect the crux which makes the route totally safe and in my opinion better.
