Great route. Instant classic. Needs a bunch more stars

very fun route, steping up to get the first placement is kinda commiting as i remember, but not that bad, just a mental thing for an old fat guy like me. My better half and i scrubbed and scrubbed this line, it is nice and clean! a must do for the 5.7 to 5.8 leader and a rare straight forward trad climb in the red! anchors are well placed and easy to set up top rope if you choose...check it out....

good times, with easy gear placements.

Not the best choice for a hot and humid day, but the top half made it worth dealing with the manky bottom.

Felt more like a 5.8 in my opinion
