Be very careful on the upper wall on this one- the clipping holds broke on me. Thankfully I was at a stance, but the rock on the upper half of this route was not inspiring.

Didn't have access to mountainproject but warmed up on this route. Really soft grading. Felt more like a 5.7 grade. My friend also did this in approach shoes.
