Fun route, looks like it could have kept goin for another 20 ft. Bring a brush to help this along.

Two things: this is 5.11b (our group's consensus grade) and deserves at least 4 stars. Only overshadowed by its 5-star big brother to the left. Although it's possible to clip the chains from lower, go for the full-value finish to one of the best jugs in the Red.
