A fun route with some big pinches and underclings. The start is a bit sketchy with the lichen, but it wasn't a problem.

Watch that anchor clip--I had the route sent until I blew it at the top (thin but OK hold for right hand but I just couldn't get the @#$% rope in the draw--hey, I've only been leading for a week). Took a 30-ft whipper and later learned that I'd sprained my ankle (kept on climbing--no brain, no pain)! Interesting start, especially if you pull the roof the "hard" way.

onsight...never been so sketched at points...definitely a couple of thank you holds on this route though...overall not the best i've ever been at; however, sweet start.

thought this route was sweet from bottom to top. Just a tad tougher than the .9 around the corner. nice variety of holds.

if my partner hadn't wanted to do it, i wouldn't have gotten on it. but this route was actually kind of fun despite the lichen covered start.

sweet start...but the lower middle is sketch with the moss on it...nearly lost it once! but the undercling holds are sweet towards the top.

Not bad, but the rock quality (mankiness) detracts...
