Awesome steep start. The end is a bit different... The name is very appropriate.

the climbing isn't bad but the bolt placement on this one (ie 5 feet away from where you're doing the moves) makes you waste time and energy wondering if you're going the right way and creates bad swinging fall potential.

Could be that it was done ground up or the rock sounded hollow when they tapped it with the hammer prior to drilling. Or it could be they F....d up the bolt placement.

Going straight up the bolt line puts this thing in the mid-11 range. The good stuff is about 4-5 feet right of it.
