|Although I added this route a while back after checking it out from Corner Pocket, I only recently got on it this past weekend. It is really good, and comparable to South Nuttal's Luv Nothing for straighforward, steep, burley cracks; it's seriously one of the NRG's best 5.12 splitters. The first 2/3 of the route are easier than it looks, but the pump builds for the headwall splitter, with way more exposure than you would expect on a singe pitch.|

To say I got my ass whooped may be an understatement, but this line is COOL!
Got on the other week and had some pump management issues followed by a dirty crack at the top that I couldn't lock into. Those are my excuses.
Really though, it's hard, but really good.
