The climbing is pretty good, but the holds are pretty suspect and the rock that the bolts are in is often suspect as well.

I thought the climbing was very enjoyable, especially the final roof. The rock quality in some areas was indeed a but "suspect", but I think the route will shape up nicely as the climber traffic increases.

Worth doing.

Awkward climbing over the roof and spooky holds put this route on my Top 10 Worst list for Shelf.

Despite some sketchy rock, I loved this climb. I would call it 5.9 climbing with a 5.10 finish over the bulge at the top.

Very fun climb actually. Just watch for the block looming below the last roof....
