Kind of like Hoofmaker. Hard boulder problem start to awesome 5.12c-ish climbing. Kinda tough anchor clip.

The opening boulder problem felt harder than Hoofmaker's. One of my least favorite on the wall.

I want to thank whoever took the time to replace the bolts with glue-ins. I've avoided this one over the years because it always had those red hangars and rusty bolts I didn't want to trust. Opening boulder problem feels humbling at first but not to bad once you get your beta. From the second bolt to the top its just classic undertow climbing. The only bummer is the like of a satisfying finishing hold for the anchor clip.

Hard to avoid climbing into high hard one at the top, but the edges are definitely there. Decent!

Bottom boulder has broken very obviously, forcing awkward but kind of badass problem on the worst holds of the tow. Feels more like 13a than the others on the wall.
