It may be helpful to have a spotter in the event that the start hold may (or may not) someday break away.

Aint no 10d. More like 10a
wiseman said on September 15th, 2004
Maybe 10a if you are taller than 5'8" (it is basically a one move reach problem)
Sco Bro said on November 2nd, 2004
Get the 10d start while it's still there, the starter hold isn't going to last. I thought the mantle was harder than the reach.

The climb isn't anything special but this bolder problem is steller.

Fun start. I bruised my thigh pretty good. The rest is alright.

Great opening move. Pull the start and your cruising a 5.8 finish. A lot of fun.

Not even a reach problem. Theres a perfect handjam 8" below the jug.

Fun start.

Definitly at least try for the direct start, have a spotter if leading. Not that fun of a route no matter what though

Me jumping and humping over this thing was the ugliest thing in all of climbing. Aside from that, not too hilarious of a route. Tons of positive foot holds and rests all the way up.

Really like the direct start. Tried twice, didn't make it, but REALLY fun!
soccerfast007 said on November 26th, 2009
Takes a pretty Burly move to pull the lip, heel hook, crank, guts no glory right?
CarenWPhoto said on May 25th, 2015
Awesome start. Even as a 5'3" woman, thought the reach was easy enough and while mantle was a challenge, totally doable and fun. Rest of the climb is easy
