Felt a little harder than Yak crack or sweet pain to me. Also rock was a little crumbly, clips were a little balancy. Do your belayer a favor and double check your stance before you call out rope. otherwise a cool route to do while in red rocks.

This route feels 2 letter grades harder than Pockets of Dirt (the one to the left). It's more solid now.

THis route just scared me. I toughed though it and managed to not fall or take. Props to anyone doing this. Really balancey

Watch those clips. Good movement, but terrible bolting.
