Climbs better than it looks from the ground. A lot of small holds will probably break of though...

Good climbing with potential for a couple more easier lines to the left. Nice addition!

Description says "chains" but as it stands now, there is one quicklink per anchor. Expect to rappell or deal with a severly twisted rope.

I addded two quicklinks to stop the rope from coiling when pulled.

This route was fun. It's a good, quick warm up for the day. Definitely not 5.9 though. Maybe 5.7 or 5.8.

Revisiting this route today it felt like an 8. Still fun but more like an intro to slab.

You know what? I am a big fucking gumbo and I have had a few to drink. Rollo has reminded me this is a good 9. :)
