Shares start with American Caesar then goes left into a thin crack system which is followed to the anchor. Interesting series of moves placing small gear. Lots of good stances to place pro. Finish is quite exciting!

3 out of 5 stars Wild moves...

The moves are a bit wild and facey off the crack line and the pro is small but its really good. I think that with more accents and a little more chalk, less plant matter and less loose rocks this route will get easier and more classic. The hard part is deciphering which ways to go then committing to the moves over kinda small gear. I watched my partner make an impressive onsight of this climb... he removed loose rocks and a plant mid way and worked out the moves attempting the wrong ways several times each, returning to the rests and eventually figured it out... fully pumped at the top. It was much easier for me to repeat his successful moves. So, a proud and hard onsight that is easier to flash.

2 out of 5 stars So thin!

I remember the pro more than the moves on this one. My partner sailed up this on TR making me think the moves are not as hard as the rating. If you get on this be prepared to make some committing moves above micro gear.
