crux is the move to the 5th bolt, a good mix of some great stretches along the way

Ah yes, a route for which you must endure a little suffering to earn the send. Cool moves, but don't be surprised if you come down with a bloody hole in your finger. OUCH!

Good route. Makes you think a lot on what you're doing. Long reaches on positive holds up to the 3rd bolt. After the 4th bolt it's a great ride. Tick holds on the feet really help, so get your buddy to do it first.

great route! much better than 2 stars... glad the lurkist caved, this would suck as a mixed route.

Thin edges going past the first bolt gives way to decent holds and rests heading up until that last bolt, with a bouldery finish. Crux move felt pretty hard, but it's very possible I suck at figuring out beta. Overall was fun, would climb again.
