Good route that might deserve another star but the rock down low had me committed to not falling off as the bolts seemed to be in dubious rock. After surmounting flake leaning against cliff work right possibly sharing a hold or two with Sting then move left and up hanging dihedral.


Start same place as Sting but work left above flake then back right.

For a safer climb & to avoid ledgefall through chossy 2nd bolt, climb and clip bottom 1/3 of Sting and traverse left at the stinger. Bottom becomes a touch harder but doesn't change the 10+ grade. Blows your Sting onsight, true, but for a 10 climber, maybe worth it.

I gave the same advice to someone at the crag.

If they later onsight Sting, I would give it to them. It's at least a "BobSight".
