Comments: Did this climb for the first time yesterday, and I'll definitely be back. The crux was definitely the bottom, but as others have said, you can fit a bomber #4/5 BD nut right before it (and back that up with a small cam a couple feet lower if you want). I don't own hexes, but I do remember a few spots where I thought "a hex would be perfect here". A number of bomber placements for big nuts (or hexes), and having an extra #1 or #2 C4 is nice, too.

Comments: Did this route for the first time yesterday, and I thought it was a blast. The bolted section is thin with some nice moves, and I thought the bolts were well placed. Above the bolts, the climbing is still fun, though it's a bit dirty and has some vegetation in the way. Used some nuts and smaller cams (placed my blue Mastercam and wanted another higher up but didn't have doubles). You'll need double ropes for the rappel, as even a 70m won't make it. There is a quicklink on the last bolt.

Comments: Awesome climb. Like the description says, no moves are much harder than 11a/b, but they just keep coming one after another. Well placed bolts, too. I'd definitely give this one a repeat when I'm back.

Comments: Agree with Steven. Both my wife (5'5") and I (6'0") thought that this was harder than Cirque, which is supposedly a 10a/b. We'd have put this one around a 9+, too.
