4 out of 5 stars Sporty

Short bouldery climb. 4 bolts with a big gap between the second and third. Hard to work on top rope and sport. A delicate start leads into a good rest with underclings, an abrupt bulge makes for an abrupt crux as you have to dyno out left and around the corner to a decent hold, hidden feet forced me to throw feet out left somewhat into space, power through the next two or three moves to the jug to clip. slightly balancy face up top, gracious amounts of crimps however i only needed to use 3 holds before i could nearly clip the chains. Great route and very fun, watch the falls from the second, i used a crash pad to cover the boulder below after coming in hot a few to many times. It may be safer to raise the second bolt, however i somewhat enjoyed the boldness of the route and wanted to show it could be done safely as is.
I do not enjoy rating these short bouldery routes! I almost expect them to feel harder than they are for me. Eager for confirmation!

3 out of 5 stars Fun

I found the first four bolts to be exceptionally fun but after that you have a no hands rest and only 1-2 more difficult moves. With out the no hands rest it would be a stellar route, Over all very well bolted and a fun climb.
