Great climb, I think its easyer then C sharp, I would hate to fall on this climb. Only one hard crux in the middle.

Rap rings on hangers at top, not Cold Shuts.

Left hand anchor bolt is loose. If anyone's down that way, might want to take a wrench and try to tighten it up.

Fun route. Easier than C sharp - The start is pretty thin and then the middle is a little crimpy, but up top the holds are bigger. I would rate this a 5.7 definitely.

Overal fun route. The work is the first move after that good holds all the way to the top.

I did not enjoy this climb

A hard start unless you use the crack to the left. The middel is the best part and makes for a nice warm-up. I would recomend this climb.

stay out of the crack and use the undercling to reach up to a good crimp on the first move...follow the bolts...i do what the bolts tell me.
