    Nice new route! Trust it is an excellent addition to Res Wall. The first ascentionist did a good job of cleaning it--for a brand new climb, there's not a lot of friable rock or sand in it. My buddy and I watched the crux get harder and harder with every burn, though, as one key face hold broke somewhat and another really useful one broke off entirely. The climbing throughout is varied and pretty entertaining. The gear recommendations are good--it can be climbed without a six, but you'll want one. I found an old #4 camalot helpful, although a new one could work. Lots and lots of #3 camalots, and more #2s and #1s than you would guess. #3.5s and new #4s didn't get nearly as much use as I'd guessed from the bottom.

    Great climb. I 'cleaned' a few of the weaker footholds off - the roof move is bitchin! If you have baby soft skin like me, the edge of the upper crack may be a bit painful on the forearms...
