Description 

Just right of The Audition, climb up into inside corners and on aretes. The line has some dust in some of the holds. A few of the moves are very fun - such as pulling around a corner on sinker holds and a finger crack that fades into nothingness. Then a few moves later the climbing lacks something - flow. This is a worthwhile line, but in my estimation, it is worth 1 1/2 stars, maybe 2 if it were cleaner.


Protection 

Nine bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

We did this route the other day and the whole group (6 people?) all thought it was fun! Definitely better than 1 or 2 stars. Long-ish and interesting moves. Cool move at the 2nd bolt and various styles up higher.

Kind of a weird route. It's hard not to follow the path of least resistance into the corner on the right. Rock quality down low isn't the best. The 2nd bolt is pretty high, and the move just before it was harder than I anticipated. Might want to be careful here.
