Thanks to Kipp for bolting this one. Great slab climbing that will keep your attention. Could be easier for 6'+ climbers.

that's what we were thinking too. hard to grade because it truly felt height dependent thru the crux. felt 5.impossible to me.

Confirmed at 5.1-burly-as-hell-move. Maybe drier conditions would help...?

I'm really not sure what number to place in front of it, but this route grade ends in a "d"
