good route. it's definitely nice to have the first bolt stick clipped.. especially if this is around your limit.

Loved it... I wish the whole crag was like this climb and Chimp.

Fun 5.9. Worth the wet feet and short, steep walk just for this one.

good climbing. it kind of gradually gets easier as you go higher.

i agree with Paul - the stick clip is your friend! there were a few thoughtful places where you can't see where the holds are above you - but they're there. the top is definately easier.

super fun route, starts hard but eases up after each passing bolts. great way to warm up the fingers for the rest of the wall.

If you can do this route, you can do Chimp no prob. Very similar situation at the bottom...first few bolts are kinda scary, then it eases up along the way.
