Short & unmemorable, except for the sharp pockets. An eliminate? Using the left wall for the obvious moves makes it much easier than the grade.

I loved this quick climb. Shoot up and have fun. Will defiantly be a warmup lead from now on.

I agree with Kraig. This route was great for a quick burn! The sharp holds aren't that sharp, and the REALLY sharp holds can be avoided without making the route harder.

I think the route is a bit underated. I like it and it has a couple of particular sequences that can be used to complete it. Both are fun and it's worth climbing, in fact I enjoy it.

One of the anchors at the top is missing! We found a nut at the bottom of the route, so the closed shut could have just fallen off or someone took it.

Poop hidden behind a small rock at the belay station, watch your feet!
