4 out of 5 stars Edge of Time

Classic line in terms of visual aesthetics. Movement is so-so. Old-school grading.

5 out of 5 stars Edge of Time

Much harder than a 5.9. I would say it is at least a 5.10b/c.

5 out of 5 stars Uh, not a "sport" route

Yes, there are bolts. Although I would not call it a sport route. Flashed on GO's gear/draws. You can get a good green alien or equiv in the crack in between the 1st and 2nd bolts which I'd say puts it at PG13. I personally thought the crux was pretty hard at 5.9. But I suck at/do not love slab.

Crux is low to the ground and ground-fall scary

I had climbed this route so many times setting trs for people that i wanted a new experience. With the crux at the bottom i wasnt too worried. Great experience.
