Description 

This good but short route has 2 difficult and engaging sections that will keep your attention.

Kind of a bad belay stance next to the tree at the start but its hard from the get go. Cranker second and first digit locks in a tight corner to a corner change with bad feet will hurt you for a short section and welcome hand jam. The final crux is negotiating the scoop with thin pro while utilizing face holds and one quick move to a hidden but good hold on slightly funky rock. (12b or c)

Is the above gear description from the guidebook? It looked like all .3 camelot's to me. I got up to the changing corners and realized my four .3's would not be enough (of which I'd already placed 3), so I down climbed. My first impression was that it looked like .3's the entire way but Bloomie convinced me to get on it with his varied rack beta. Book says two or three .3's and three .4's. I'd take six or seven .3's and then some less than tips for the top boulder problem.
