This route hurts but it's worth it!
Good to have lots of finger-sized pieces

It is insane that this and crime of the century get the same rating. A rare squamish sandbag.

Not as hard/painful/nails as people say it is. Just crack bouldery. A true trad send is to not use the pin at all. Great gear all around it anyway.
