Comments: 2012 - clean as a whistle. Ready for prime time and totally worth it.

Two distinct cruxes that are worth the effort of figuring out. I give it 2.5 stars. More if it was longer.

Comments: I dislocated my shoulder on this one in the squeeze. Blew out the labrum and stretched out everything else. Surgery, recovery, I'll be back.

Comments: Some 5.8 moves up with poor pro in places. Negotiating underneath the tree is getting harder as the years go by.

Both the 1st and 2nd pitches have really run out sections. Be confident at the grade and you'll be fine. I'd never trust putting an Alien or TCU in the piton scars, flares too much.

I recommend doing it in 3 pitches. The route zig zags around and generates lots of rope drag. Single eyebolt for rapping at the peak.
