    A WAY fun route, with a steep, juggy finish, that's over-rated in difficulty (5.9-ish?) and under-rated in stars.

    Awesome route, some folks at the crag called it a 5.9 so I gave it a go. Some fun moves and pockets mixed with a steeper finish. Felt like a 5.9 to me but I'll take it as my first 5.10 lead!

    10- or 9+, nice pull near the top that makes you think about foot placement. Really cool layback section under the crux and a good mix of holds.

    all the routes on this wall are bolted very well for beginning leaders.. nice work
