Great climb, thought provoking throughout. There is still alot of lichen throughout the middle section and the bottom has alot of soak-through water but that doesn't interfere with some fine movements

My hat is off to whoever finds and bolts such stellar slab...This is one of the best technical slabs in the Red (imho)...The moves all come together, the hands and feet are just good enough, and you pay REALLY close attention the whole way....climb this thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!
