This route is way fun. Found the lower crux v hard for me in 90 degree weather at 90% humidity. Can't wait to get on it when things cool down a bit.

Powerful and tricky bottom crux followed by incredibly unique and intuitive climbing above. Epic. Watch out for fuzzy flying things around the 4th bolt!

Did anyone else pull the crux from two hand jams, or do I just have weird beta?
