it's down to 1 chicken butt if referring to the start. my partner broke the reallly good left hand/foot :-( made me a bit more than nervous to have the first hold of the day break, but overall it was a decent climb.

First two bolts are the crux. You may want to stick clip it. Solid 5.9 slab. Nice intro into into 5.9 balance moves...

Climbed wet and it seemed about 5.9. If it were dry, I'd guess 5.8-, maybe 5.7. However, judging by the amount of green on this route it might not be dry very often.
