Fun route! The climbing is intense and does not let up (even before the crux!), and between the challenging moves, tiny holds, and big potential for swinging, it definitely gets the adrenaline pumping. I was scared following this route!

Because of the swing potential, if you're going to leave a top-rope up, I suggest leaving your quickdraws in, and clip the rope back in on your way down.
