Comments: Agreed. It's all in the first couple moves. I'm tall and found it not so bad, but I still stick clipped the first bolt and pre-hung the second. If you can make the initial moves off the ground, the rest is cake. This would be quite hard for someone shorter than 5'9'' or 5'10''.

Comments: This is not a gimme V3. Very foot work intensive and fun.

Comments: Agreed. Nuts and small cams will do just fine. Crack starts to peter out towards the top.

Comments: A little harder than it looks on the ground. Fun climb on solid rock. Didn't see any Bat guano.

Comments: Hard to start if you are shorter. When I got to the scary mantle I realized why the climb was dubbed Out on a Limb. Not much fun falling from the mantle above your bolt.

Comments: Don't fall before the first bolt. That's it.

Comments: To Anonymous- Yes, that is called black plague and goes at V6. The Ramp is V4 and very over-rated in my opinion.

Comments: It helped me a lot to just skip the bubble hold and go straight for the in-cut flake. Really isn't insanely highball compared to say...bishop.

Comments: Such a cool problem with great moves. Save energy for the pinch at the end.

Comments: Route has a potential of ground fall or sprained ankle. It is very short three bolt slab. There should be one more bolt protecting the mantle b/c the rock is very polished at that spot. Putting one more bolt at that point is convenient to clip, safer and doesn't take away from the aesthetics of the route.
