Great balancy climbing! Spice factor high; good route!

Definitely a spice factor on this one. Use your rope gun to hang the draws for you; or don't if you are looking for a little excitement. Great moves!

Terrible bolting job. Seems forced.

There is a crack to the right of this that would make for a pretty cool mixed variation start to this route, but it would take a little cleaning.

Spicy, indeed. Not a good route to outweigh your belayer on. Moves might be worth going back for, but pucker will make me think twice.

Really fun moves on surprisingly solid rock. Felt more like 11d to me. Nice find, guys!

Fun route. Clipping second bolt is heinous. Me and a friend both found it harder than golden shower. Pants filler for sure
