Fantastic voyage up the heart of the Sparks Wall! Powerful fingers for the first 40 feet gives way to some easier terrain, then difficult thin hands through tiered roofs, and finally classic hands in a fantastic position.

I was happy with the following rack: 1 blue Metolius, 3-4 yellow Aliens, 3 x .4 camalots, 2 red Aliens, 3 x .5 camalots, 1 x .75 camalot, 5-7 x #1 camalots, 2 x 2.5 friends, 4-5 x #2 camalots, 1 x #3 camalot
